  1. do you play it for the first time?
    => have you installed all the updates?
    => use google: fallout 3 freezes "your windows version"

    fallout3 has a lot of bugs (it is bethsoft after all...) and a lot of problems are already been fixed and explained, so please search a bit first.

    if it still doesnt work, please tell us:
    - what you have tried
    - what windows you're using
    - what cpu and gpu you have.
  2. I am playing it right now on my rig and went through the exact same thing. The problem is apparently with a patch they did, which has trouble with quad core CPU's.

    To fix it, pay careful attention to the path here:

    Step 1)
    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.

    Step 2)
    Download and install the latest klite codec pack from here:
