BSOD athr.sys - happening constantly

HELP!! I keep getting this error. I did a Google search and found several threads about it, some in this forum. I updated the drivers as others were told, and it has not helped. I am leaving to go to Chicago today for work and I really need my laptop functioning for the next 3 days.

I hope that I followed the instructions correctly. I've uploaded the file from the SF Diagnositc tool here.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop

You still have a very old driver installed:

Try downloading a newer directly from Atheros homepage:

I found another driver from searching more threads. I haven't had a BSOD in a while because I turned off my wireless card and am connected via hard wire (also still in safe mode w/ networking)

This is the latest driver I just installed: 9.2.0.105 11/5/2010 it was a modded driver found in this thread: Latest Atheros modded Driver for Windows 7, Vista and WinXP - Atheros Chipset - LaptopVideo2Go Forums
