Windows 7: BSOD connecting to wifi network

BSOD connecting to wifi network

Im guessing this was after I tried installing an Atheros driver. After restarting and attempting to connect to a nearby WiFi network the computer goes straight to a BSOD. Help is needed fast and appreciated.

Hello,

It seems a bunch of people are experiencing problems with the latest Atheros network drivers. Try using the Driver Rollback feature in Device Manager, or else uninstall the driver and install an older version. Any problems, let us know!

Hi mmlyman,

Try working from Safe Mode.

I couldn't even get into safe mode... I kept hard rebooting and when Windows finally started to boot I pushed the wireless button and turned wifi off. After a couple more reboots Windows 7 started up correctly and I was able to roll back the driver. Thanks for your help. I won't update that driver again!
