Disabling shadows

I would appreciate some help in disabling shadows, I've changed Skyrimprefs.ini, didn't work, but I did turn them to low in the settings.

Basically my PC is more than capable of this game, but indoors my FPS go to hell, and I've read this is the way of fixing it.

If someone could tell me how all the Shadow related values look like before being altered, I would also appreciate it, as I did not backup my old ones.

Frame rate drop INSIDE ? That's unbelievably odd...it should be HIGHER indoors.

Sure you don't have any mods?

Nope, unless you consider Dragonborn, Heartfire and Dawnguard mods.

I checked both of these since I thought there was only one, and found that one of them had the sneaky line "FullScreen=0", which was the cause of the distress. Some of you who are having issues might want to check this, because I had it set to FullScreen in the options, apparently to no avail.

Thanks all.
