Because not every PC is setup the same. Just because you have no problems with FO3, does not mean nobody else should either.

I give up. Maybe I screwed up by running the windows settings transfer program, that also moved my games folder from vista to 7.
Despite deleting the games folder, uninstalling fallout3, using nvidia drivers and the mov2008 directx drivers, I still have my pc freeze when exiting falllout3.
Until I figure it somehow, I wont try to run it again.
EDIT:
I re-installed windows 7, installed the 1.04 fallout3 patch and the nvidia windows 7 drivers and ... everything alright.
Thank god!

That's OK Viveksuart, I only use them because I have so many games and it's a PITA to keep changing the disc every time I want to play a different game.

I wish it worked for me! I still have the same old 'freeze on exit' problem. Very frustrating.

I'm using the latest beta Nvidia drivers on a fresh install of build 7057.
Interestingly, The game appeared to work fine until I went outdoors. While still indoors I put the game through it's paces: cleaned out the band of raiders holed up inside the northern-most ComSat array. Usual indoor fun with VATS and the shotgun. Within a few seconds of going outside, the game crashes.

One peculiar thing I note is that the crash causes no perceptible slowdown in the system. Maybe 7 is better at cleaning up after killed processes than its predecessor. Any game crash in Vista would cause a massive slowdown for nearly a minute and 7 behaves as if I had just closed Calculator. On 2 GB of memory.

According to the application event logs:
Code:

... Nvidia is the culprit. I know we're only in Beta, not primetime, but then again it took over a year for Nvidia to not occasionally bluescreen me from the desktop, let alone from inside an intense video game. I know ATI had a few problems, but their crashes seem to be fixed already.

I'd like to know if anyone else on Nvidia hardware has similar problems. I'll keep trying a few things, such as different video settings.

8800 GTS 640MB

On a side note about Windows Update forcing the beta drivers:
Microsoft has been irritated with driver developers due to the perceived instability of Vista they largely caused. In a way, it makes it easier for them to say "Well, we did our best. We've provided you with the latest drivers they have. Blame them." I don't blame them for not wanting to put a third of the perceived stability of their flagship product solely in the hands of Nvidia, and Nvidia doesn't want people to stop buying their products because it doesn't work on the OS that came with their OEM computer. So they're holding hands on this one, instead of deferring to one another. Hopefully.
