You know it's bad when even the console version of Fallout 3 has problems.
Do a google search for Fallout 3 ctd, not responding etc and you get literally endless pages worth of feedback.
QFT! Fallout 3 is not perfect. Many things could have been done on the coding side to have made it better for the consumer, but that's water under the bridge.
Not every fix will work for every person. Different computers have different configurations, different software, different versions of operating systems, and even different levels of operating system optimization. No one fix will cover all of that just as there will be some that are never fixed. While some of the blame can be laid at Bethesda's feet, not all of it is their fault. Bethesda cannot predict every possible configuration that people will try to use to run the game so they took their best educated shot at it. If you want a controlled experience buy an Apple and get used to only being able to do what the Apple cult's leader Jobs tells you that you can do on HIS machine.
I am closing this thread. The info will remain, but the game has been out long enough for whatever fixes that were going to be found to have been found.
