BSOD When using virtual Box

My computer is a vaios windows 7 home premium 64bit only 4 months old, my employer gave me the laptop brand new but had installed some things on it.

I have gotten a BSOD 4 times now 2 were in the very beginning before i had hardly downloaded anything and the last two times have been since i have downloaded a lot of software. So i really don't think the virtual box is the cause though now i have had 2 BSOD in 24 hours.

i am running ubuntu in the virtual box and am only using the terminal + emacs

please help me quickly as i need to finish a project and the BSOD is stopping me

i read the bsod posting thing and i believe i followed the instructions correctly!

MS Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1

Probably caused by : NETwNs64.sys ( NETwNs64+90968 ) Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 5000 Series Adapter

Update Driver:

Uninstall: DAEMON Tools is Known to crash Windows.

msconfig - boot faster and crash less.

1. Click on the Windows 7 start icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.

2. Type msconfig in the search box and then either press enter on your keyboard or double-click on the msconfig program that appears in the search results.

3. Windows 7 will launch Microsoft's System Configuration Utility. Click on the Startup tab.

4. This takes you to a page with a list of "startup items." Startup items are programs that are automatically loaded every time you turn on your computer. Some startup programs are absolutely necessary e.g Anti Virus, others are simply a waste of RAM.

5. Click on the OK button.

6. A message will pop up telling you that you must restart your computer before these changes will take effect. Click on "Restart" and your computer will automatically reboot.

7. That's it! Your computer should now boot faster and crash less.

If you ever want to turn on any of the startup items you disabled with msconfig , just run msconfig again.
