Windows 7: BSOD BugCheckcode 0x000000D1

Good morning world! I see I am certainly not the only person with BSOD problems...

Ok, I would like to try uninstalling but if I want to install the new driver should there not be some kind of setup file or .exe file within that zipfile I downloaded off of the atheros.cz website? Also, the zipfile I downloaded contains files for both x32 and x64, so do I ditch the x32 ones?

And click the Click for Download on the bottom of the first list.

Then extract the folder IN folder DONT spread the files in your desktop.

Then from device manager\right click\update driver software\browse my computer for driver software\select the folder\next

Hm, something is going wrong. When I go into device manager I right click on the adapter and go to properties.

Then in the driver tab I click on uninstall (behind which it says to uninstall the driver). I then get a pop-up saying:

Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
Warning: You are about to uninstall this device from your system

Below this there is a box I can tick with the following text: Delete driver software from this device

If I do not tick the box and click ok, some uninstalling takes place and adapter completely disappears from from the device manager. If I right click on the Network Adapters Settings and select Scan for hardware Changes, it comes back with the old driver installed.

So do I tick the box?

That takes me back to the same message that the driver is up to date.

Will it help if I tick the box to delete the driver software after clicking uninstall?
