to fix fallout 3 (without expansions)
Open up the fallout.ini file in: My Documents\My Games\Fallout3
Find the line:

bUseThreadedAI=0

change it to:

bUseThreadedAI=1

Add another line after it and insert:

iNumHWThreads=2

This will limit the game to 2 cores and prevent the engine bug from causing the game to freeze.

*If the game still crashes write this iNumHWThreads=1

run it in XP sp3 mode

Right Hand click on the .exe file and go to properties, change the operating system here. Change to run it as XP SP3 and go ahead and check the run as admin box while in properties.

This should fix you right up...

No, I do not use mods. I am using a store bought version on disc. Not sure if you guys are using bought or cracked but just so you know. Have you looked at the Bethesda site to see if they have added any updates that will fix compatibillity issues with Windows 7?

is your game licensed or pirated version? and whats your fully specs? to tell you something since i upgraded my junk computer to modern and brought fresh Fallout 3/all Expansion and patched to latest version i dont get any single problems with it, you probably having a Virus? try scanning your computer with Avira not all problem are from game faults it could ba a virus that merging in your .exe that everytime you run your game the virus is activated
