Windows 7: BSOD when installing/downloading, ntoskrnl.exe errors

BSOD when installing/downloading, ntoskrnl.exe errors

Hey everyone. Having some issues with BSODs, generally when I'm downloading games such as League of Legends (using the Pando Media Booster program to do so), when I install/download games through Steam, and even just when I leave the computer on long enough for it to go on standby. While there are several other filenames listed in the crash reports, every single one involves the ntoskrnl.exe.

I had it examined by Best Buy, and they told me that it's likely a software issue, as all my hardware checks out. Any help I can get would be appreciated.

The perfmon /report function is not working at the moment (possibly because I'm working in Safe Mode so I can type this without interruption by BSOD), but attached is the crash reports. Edit: Perfmon /report added

- x64 bit system
- Original installed OS on the system - Full retail version - What is the age of system (hardware)? : 1 year - Recently reinstalled Windows (last week, did a repair installation and that seemed to help temporarily)

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

Please update to the latest version.

Thank you, I think that's done it. Will try and test it out for a couple days to make sure that's everything, then mark thread as solved. I appreciate the help immensely.

Alrighty then, run pretty much every program/other sort of thing I could think of, no more issues. Thanks again, marking thread as solved.
