How do you fix the Windows 7 crash problem?

#1gamer1396Posted 12/11/2010 12:20:10 PM

I know you have to go into the Fallout 3 folder and alter a couple things but I don't remember exactly what to do. I've done it before, I just don't remember exactly what I did.

PS: Don't know if it makes a difference but I have the GOTY edition.

I remember a dual/quad core crash issue, but not a regular Windows 7 issue.

The dual core fix is here:

I have Win 7, but how do I tell if I havequad core processor or not?I can find anything I want in Win XP,but being new to Win 7 it confuses me.

Try going to My Documents > My Games > Fallout 3 and deleting the fallout and falloutprefs files. That's what fixed my crash issue. (Which, BTW is with the steam version of the game. "Try buying it" is lousy advice.)

I only see i7 CPU. That does not tell me if it is dual or not.
