I'm using Windows 7 and fallout plays fine.

I imagine most games that are designed for vista will run on windows 7 fine.

If your game is freezing this post by a Tom's hardware member name Windsheer fixed everything for me:

I just bought the GOTY edition on my new computer and ran into this same junk. This game has been out for a long time. What are the doing over there. My issue was random freezing that required an end task between 20min-2hours of gameplay. There was no common factor. Here is what i did.

Patch game> still freezes
Checked FFdshow settings > already done by game install
tried to ingnore the freezes > made me more angry at bethseda
tried to get help from bethseda forum > they wanted me to sign up to do a search !@#$ them...

THIS IS WHAT WORKED FOR NEW GOTY INSTALL ON NEW COMPUTER
then did this configuration and downlaoded the latest codec pack here I am guessing the codec pack was more of the key.

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.
