Can't seem to get the alt tab to work when the game freezes. I have disabled steam overlay. If the game crashes hard the win message window pops up saying fo has stopped responding etc and I am at the desktop but with a freeze I have to start the task manager and logout to do anything. Any ideas?

You should be able to force quit the game from the Task Manager. I do that all the time. There's a couple mods that will auto force-quit the game if it quits responding, but in my own experience, they're too sensitive on detecting the game not responding and force-quit the game when it's not needed. Particularly when the game gets certain kinds of NVAC hits, which can pause the game for several seconds.

A useful trick I discovered when I can't alt-tab during a freeze on Windows 10 is doing Windows Key + Tab and right clicking the locked up FNV applciation and moving it to another desktop. This will allow me to open task manager on my main desktop to force close it.
