Blue Screen in Vista and not in Windows 7?

Has anyone tried Windows 7 yet? Let's cut to the chase. I got the Blue Screen of Death several times with Vista. Several times I got it because Vista did not allow for multiple virus detection programs being on one machine at the same time (they did not even have to be running). And now I am having a huge headache. I am getting the BSOD for seemingly just going through a collection of possible fonts that I might want to install. It seems there is a limit to the number of font windows you can have at the same time.

So naturally I am wondering what is next? And naturally I am wondering if really truly these problems are fixed with Windows 7.

I doubt your BSODs are Vista related.

Post your system specs.

You really don't need multiple viriscanners installed in fact I've heard this alone can cause stability issues. Even if they don't look active, they usually are.

Right, installing several AV programs on the same PC is not necessary for XP, Vista and Win7. This might be the reason lead to blue screen.

Actually, I have 5 anti virus/spyware programs installed in XP

The reason is that, I have found some problems that were not fixed by one program, not by another and then finally, a third program caught the spyware.

All are free softwares and no one runs at windows start up except for a firewall [Comodo].

I do not have any problem but may be such thing will cause problem in Vista.

None of these programs run unless I manually open them. I have these programs installed for like 1.5+ years and so far, I have got no problem of any kind.

I have no PC hanging problem or PC slowing as these softwares do not run automatically.

Infact, for some softwares, I have to start them via services.msc .....

I think you don't need to run serval antivirs software,If you run serval antivirus at the same time,the memory will be exhausted.And you just can run a single antivirus and a firewall.These are enough for you to protect your computer.
