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.

Wish I could tell you, I have no need or desire to run one or several AV programs on any of my machines. I also don't install new fonts either. But from my experience with Windows7 is it is a much better OS than Vista.

From trying out windows 7 i would agree that it is far better than windows vista. However i dont understand why you would have the need to run more than one AV program at the same time? trying to do this tends to cause problems on machines as they are not designed to run together, not to mention that this will serious slow down your computer.

Some AV programs catch some viruses and some catch others. THis is especially true if it is a new virus. At least that was the case in the past
