Hello OtherGuy13

Your crashes are related to athrxusb.sys Extensible Wireless LAN device driver from Atheros Communications, Inc.

Update this to the newest please.

Is this the driver for my wireless adapter? If so, I have already installed it multiple times. If not, I do not know where to obtain the driver for this.

It is indeed your wifi driver. You can obtain a newer version from the mfr (athros) but if that is the newest driver since it is not win 7 compliant you need to install it in compatibility mode

(compat mode=right click the installer>properties>compatibility>choose OS)

Alright, it was installing for Windows XP, so hopefully that was the only problem and won't cause BSODs anymore

Installed in compatibility mode and still got the same error. Uploading new minidump with this post. I used this wireless adapter for another computer with Windows 7 and it worked perfectly fine. Is it possible that I might need a new one? It may also be good to note that this generally only happens while playing a game or downloading games.

EDIT: I just now changed wireless adapters to a Belkin Version 5 as apposed to Belkin Version 4, which required a different driver, and the only athxrusb.sys is located in the windows drivers, while when I was using the version 4 there were 3 instances of it. Could this have helped?

It could have been a contributing factor.

The most recent driver still points to it.

Alright, well the new version has a different driver, so should I completely remove the other driver from my system?

My self built computer has been producing bsods at random times since I reinstalled Windows last month.
