Got my first BSOD.

Hi Guys, I just got my first ever BSOD today (5 mins ago), and am concerned. Can anyone look into this for me. However before I was installing Security Programs (not 2 anti-viruses at once).

Here are my dumps.

According to this, one of the drivers on your network stack is behaving badly (access violation in kernel mode referencing nonpaged pool memory == immediate bugcheck):

The driver in question (athur.sys) is the Atheros extensible WiFi device driver, meaning it's likely you have an Atheros-based WiFi card in that system, which is odd for a desktop system:
Code:

BIOS Starting Address Segment f000

Product H67M-S/H67M-V/H67
I can't see anything about the global object table or device specific settings from a minidump, but if you've got a WiFi adapter in there, it's driver is behaving badly it would seem.

Yes I do use a USB Adapter as I do not have a Wireless Card:

NETGEAR WNA1100 N150 Wireless USB Adapter.

Looks like there's a newer version on NetGear's website - might be worth downloading and testing.
