BSOD with uTorrent?

hi all,
i have been experiencing a BSOD every time i leave utorrent to download overnight. i wake up in the morning and my system tells me that it shut down unexpectedly, and there is no improvement on my torrents. i am running avast antivirus and windows firewall, and utorrent 3.1.3.

win 7 came installed on my laptop
ive had my computer for about a month or so.
it performed a system restore once because i connected it to an external monitor while it was switched on.

the perfmon /report thing wouldnt let me click save as....what do i do?

It is never a good idea to run more than one active Malware app and this is the result. Please remove both Avast and McAffee and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Avast can be a contributing cause of BSOD'S . Please remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

You do have McAfee, and while Avast worked well in XP on some win 7 machine it isnt stable. Thats why I recommended removing both AT LEAST TO TEST.

They dont. Remember we were all noobs when we first came here. You use the in-install tool in my other post.
