Yes, I think you'll find the save files somewhere under My Documents (look for My Games or somesuch).

Windows 7

The location is : C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\Documents\My Games\Fallout3\Saves.

Try moving one saved game back and forth to check if this is the right folder.

Win 7 64 Bit
Wow got it working

After a lot of frustration i finally got it working on Win 7 64 bit.

After having tried just about every solution in here, to no avail, i was ready to give up.

But then i trawled the Application Log in Windows and found this little gem:
Faulting application name: Fallout3.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x49cd1e54
Faulting module name:, version:, time stamp: 0x3f7176b0
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0002df54
Faulting process id: 0x1654
Faulting application start time: 0x01c9dae305a5dbf4
Faulting application path: F:\Gamez\Fallout 3\Fallout3.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\Shared Files\AudioFilter\
Report Id: 507981da-46d6-11de-8ca0-00248c189b93
Notice the line:

Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\Shared Files\AudioFilter\

Turns out the PowerDVD player was at fault all the time.
After uninstalling it, Fallout works perfectly.

random crashes are a mainstay of BethSoft. I don't think they even fixed the 'exit game' crash in oblivion yet.......

Sneaky copy of Win 7 build 7000

The crash on exit bug here is Games for Windows Live. I disabled it through some trickery and the game runs fine now.
