Windows 7: BSOD when playing video or games

BSOD when playing video or games

So I believe this problem started for me on Sunday. I had posted another problem in another thread and had thought this problem had been fixed for good. but sadly not. For some strange reason whenever I play this game called (League of Legends) my computer will crash and give me the BSOD! It does not happen automatically and not even all the time. When we had first thought this problem to be solved it allowed me to play 3 games before it crashed. Then it crashed when I attempted to load a youtube video. Right now it is allowing me to view youtube videos fine.
I am not sure exactly what the problem is. Here are the .dmp files.

I'm having trouble getting the health report like how instructed. My computer has done one and i can see the report. But explorer did not open.
Is there another way to get it in a savable fashion?

One possibility is your WLAN driver - athrx.sys. Try upgrading this driver.

Also upgrade your video and sound driver if possible.

I've attempted to upgrade all the drivers.
the atheros driver updated to the 2009 model.

The video card updated as far as I can tell.
The sound driver updated as well.

I did all these updates today and my system still crashed. I attempted to de-install and re-install.

And the first time the system crashed it was just random. No new software or hardware had been added for a while.
