  1. Fallout 3 isn't optimized to run on Windows 7. You can try multiple things from Google.

    Just Google around, there are many things you can try, I've tried a lot of things and have gotten my copy to work, but sometimes it will just crash randomly after 5-6 hours of playing. Best of luck.
  2. Yeah, I remember having a couple of issues installing FO3 in Win 7. FO3 does not officially support Win 7. The links above should help. I recall doing similar things to get it up and running.

    I think FO3 also have some major issues with Win 8, but I don't play it anymore and I have no intentions of upgrading to Win 8.
