Flickering Snow Texture in Ultimate Collection

Please forgive me for my noobish-ness, but this problem is driving me absolutely insane.

I am running Ultimate Collection on Windows 10. So far, it's been a pain in the rear to get everything working normally, but I've covered almost all graphical issues Windows 10 brings about.

Keyword being almost.

Whenever it snows, the texture on the ground (the snow) will flicker when I move my mouse or camera. I'm talking rave-status. The problem is most noticeable over decks or foundations.

I've fixed the flickering textures I had before in neighborhood view by tweaking the graphics file a little, but no amount of fiddling with the graphics file seems to help the snow texture from flickering.

I've updated my video card file as well with the help of this site, and the problem still persists.[attachment=3061]

Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

Your Graphic Rules looks to be correct looking at your config-log.txt

When you say the snow textures flicker - are they pink or the colour they're supposed to be? I'm just wondering from the point of view of whether it's a texture memory/graphics card problem (pink) or a CPU problem (white).

Do you have the game running as admin and compatibility set to Windows 8?

Could you do a DXDiag and upload it for me? I may need to tweak your card to give it more memory to play with.

Hi, I hope it's not too late to reply to this thread or that I'm going against forum rules by posting nearly 4 months later. If I am, please let me know. I just now remembered I posted this. (I am a bit scatterbrained)
The snow textures are the color they're supposed to be (white).
I haven't tried running the game in compatibility mode or as an admin, but I'll try that now.
Here's my DXDiag file, again, let me know if I've messed up. Hopefully it's not too late for me. o.O
