Great game, but doesn't really install well on Windows 7

Summary: Like the title says, it works with a few tweaks and fixes, but it gets locked up when you're about 98% finished. Frustrating as hell, but it's my fault for not reading the computer requirements more carefully.
Summary: Man, I just love shooting the crap out of some poor tribal guy in the post apocalyptic world that is Fallout 3. Pros: Guns, mutants, Beyond Thunderdome playing in your head as you wonder the waists. And Liam Nelson plays your father! Cons: Not one station in the game plays Beyond Thunderdome.
Summary: If you're running Windows 7 or Windows 8 this game is marked as not compatible on Microsoft's website. There is a post on Bethesda's forums on how to get it to work, basically need to make SURE to install in a different directory (e.g. c:\fallout) not the program files because of Windows UAC, disable the multi-core support for on your processor in the fallout.ini file, and run as Admin.
Summary: The online listing description for this game does not state that your computer OS must be XP or Vista. I have Windows 7 and 8 .It will not run on those. It is however on the packaging. Unfortunately I did not look close enough until after removing the covering, so I can no longer return the game. Lesson learned.
