I tried those fixes (good advice and I thought it would work)but it didn't make any difference to my game. Fallout 3 still crashes after only 1-2 minutes (pretty severe) which is frustrating because I'm nearing the end of the game.
Is there any other fixes I could try, like would disabling MS Live sort the crashes out and what is the best/safest way to do this? Thanks

I found that it did help, btw its called Transparency Multisampling so I just turned this off completely. Also turned off Depth of Field, AA 2x + AF 8x = no more constant crashes, just every couple of hours like you. I did also do another OS tweak but I'll leave that out because for some people it may cause serious issues if you don't backup your OS often and I don't want to get flamed.
The above basics should work and install Fallout Mod Manager to make sure any mods are unticked. I found that I can do without mods which may be causing 'some' of the crashing.
I'm starting to enjoy this game again so thanks for the tips here everyone
