    Run regedit and delete the registry entries... and if that doesn't work then buy some Fallout 3 :)

    hey pwndmyoblivion

    What 3rd party programs have you tried? Have you used CC cleaner or TuneUp Utilities? Maybe you could try doing a System Restore to get the files back and then use a 3rd party program so it finds it for you.
