I'm having some problems with Fallout. Every time I kill people indoors and try to save/exit the building the game crashes to desktop. It also happens when I blow up Megaton. Can somebody tell me what to do to fix this?

Those specs seem good enough to me. Are your drivers up to date? have you patched the game? Do you have stuff running in the background?

Also, try different game settings. It could have to do the outside effects not the killing. Try low details, low resolution and then start increasing it.

Tried in lowest settings, keeps crashing. It started when I updated the game this morning, after that i already installed and uninstalled the game.

Solved.It was a corrupted save.

Good, Oblivion is very simular. I kept having crashes yesterday, so I deleted all the saves and went back to the ones i backed up recently. So far its ok, fingers crossed

My oblivion crashed a lot as well for the same reason.
