Please do a full **clean** re-install:

- move any valued save games elsewhere
- "uninstall" in Steam-CK3
- manually delete both the Steam/SteamApps/common/CK3 AND Documents/Paradox Interactive/CK3 folders
- re-install game in Steam, run a Steam Verify when done.
- add CK3.exe to the exceptions list of your antivirus app; ESPECIALLY if you have Windows Defender, add it to the Ransomware "Apps Allowed Through" list.
- start the game with no mods active and test with a new campaign - NOT any existing one.

In particular make sure there are no files or folders left under either the Steam CK3 or Documents CK3 locations, before installing again.

If those don't help:
DXDIAG is a program you run from the Windows search box on the task bar. After running it will open a window and start collecting info with a progress bar in the lower-left corner. When it completes click the 'save all information' button and save it to a file then attach that file here.

Please attach here your Documents/Paradox Interactive/CK3/pdx_settings.txt .
From your Documents/Paradox Interactive/CK3/logs/ folder, attach here system.log , error.log

Are you sure these files are from after a clean reinstall? Because that error log looks pretty mean ...

You may as well update that nVidia driver to Feb 2022:

Download the latest official NVIDIA drivers

Bedo Pasha said: I also optimized CK3
In what way, please? If you are running GeForce Experience, best to unload that while we work on this problem.

If you revert to 1.4.4 and disable the Royal Court DLC, and delete everything in Documents/Paradox Interactive/CK3/ except your saved games, do you still get this problem?

In what way did you optimise CK3 please? Did you unload GeForce Experience, if so did that help the issue under ?
