Windows 7: Freezing Problem with Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

We are both correct.
Those are the minimum requirements.
I posted the recommended requirements.

True, it will run on minimum, but from my experience the recommended is usually more accurate for smooth gameplay, which is why I go by them.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64

OK Resurrection of old thread for the cure. Win 7 doesn't always play nice with Oblivion or Fallout 3. The cure is to run Oblivion in compatibility mode of XP service pack 3. Fallout if issues occur' run in compatibility mode Vista service pack 2. doing this will cure the lock ups.

I had the same lock up at the same place as the OP on my gaming rig. hope this helps others looking for answers like i was.
