Hello I have Fallout 3 and it was working great but I decided to install mods using Nexus mod manager. Every time I started the game it crashed. So now I disabled all the mods and even deleted them and when I go into Fallout 3 and click new game the game says: "Fallout 3 has stopped working". What do I do?

I have deleted Steam local content 3 times now and there is nothing in my data folder related to mods.

Here's an image of what my Fallout 3 folder looks like:

Can someone please help me out and tell me how to fix my game and put it back to the way it was?

    You got it on Steam, right? In Steam, right click the game, go Properties, Local Files, and click the Verify Integrity of Game Cache. See what that does. – Frank Oct 22 '16 at 14:14
  • @Frank it still crashes – Jack Oct 22 '16 at 14:21

    I don't recall Fallout 3 being all that happy with Windows 10. In fact, the Steam page even says it's not fully compatible with Windows 7. – Kaizerwolf Oct 22 '16 at 14:31

Back it up somewhere and then delete C:\users\[YOU]\appdata\local\[Bethesda game name]
