No PC booting problems before. Lost of failed boots since the stealth patch. Related?

Can't be. The Steam update was a straight file swap - TESV.exe for a Steam wrapped TESV.exe. Unless your computer is running TESV.exe on boot then it can't affect it.

Several people have been noting greater crashes as the game progresses - this is what we've seen on my wife's computer as well, at around the 30-40 hour mark. If you hit this point at the same time as patching you might associate the sudden occurrence of crashes with the patch, but actually it's just a time thing (Wife's computer was always run from Steam with the patched exe, no crashes prior to 30-40 hours, regular ones afterwards).

On the other hand I still don't have crashes, and my hours are much higher.

Just don't let Steam to auto-load during PC starts ? I switched it into manual start. I just don't want it to take away memory/RAM when I don't want it to.

Guys seems that the patch is released for PS3:
http://forums.bethsoft.com/index.php…-patch-is-out/

No changelog inside, seems it affects graphics and removes lag on PS3 but doesn't solve quest bugs…

Anyways, PC and XBOX players still have to wait.

Yeah, I think it's a coincidence. It's more likely that Skyrim is stressing my system. FPS is right on the hairy edge of acceptability at times (feels like close to 30 FPS at the worse).

I also did a disk defragmentation before installing since the disk free space was sliced up, which may have been a bad idea…

Unless your computer is from 1990 that's really not necessary. If you want to disable it to start windows quicker I can see that but it really doesn't use enough memory to make a difference.

I've never had more than 30% of my memory used when running steam and a game at the same time. Which is really annoying. I actually went down from 12GB to 8 when I switched to ddr 3 because 12 was a waste for gaming. 8 probably is too I don't understand why games don't take advantage of extra memory. They leave 70% of my memory free then still hit the swapfile what a waste.

Well, seriously, I just checked and while my Steam usually takes up about 20 - 30MB of memory it is for some weird reason on the heavier memory usage side today with almost 100MB of RAM used (see attachment to this post).
And I have not even used Steam today or played a Steam game. Steam has just been sitting idle in the taskbar since I booted my system. It was also not auto-updating or anything. It just sat there, doing nothing and… eating memory because it was hungry or something(?)

Yep, my Steam takes 117MB memory, on XP no less. And if I never open its "browser" and just use it indirectly to kick off Skytime, it's 62MB.

My guess is that the exe was supposed to require Steam from the beginning and it was some sort of error or oversight that allowed it to run without Steam. It was probably it was less about enhancing the DRM post launch, and more about correcting their previous error to make it a Steamworks exclusive game as was originally intended.

As FOSE, NVSE and OBSE all work fine with Steam, I imagine the eventual skyrim script extender will be no exception.

Well commit is actually even larger at around 200mb. The ~100mb is just the private exclusively reserved RAM.

Either way, not a problem for most systems.

Hmm interesting. On my system it takes about 100+ when it first starts but then drops down to 4/5mb. May be i am the lucky one. I will need to monitor it more carefully then.
