Fix #2

Fix #3

Some users might attempt to open “SkyrimPrefs.ini” at this location: “C:\Users\USER\Documents\My Games\skyrim”.

Your FPS [1] can also be limited. You will receive the same number of frames per second (FPS) as Hz on a fast computer and fast monitor. 

If your FPS is higher than 60, though, the game suffers. Although restricting to 60Hz might be effective, it would be excessive. The solution is to set the frame rate of the game itself to 60.
