Windows 7: ndis.sys BSOD (timing seems random)

ndis.sys BSOD (timing seems random)

I get the BSOD every couple of weeks. Most of the research I've done indicated that it was probably an out of date driver, but I've updated everything I could (at least everything that I'm aware of). I can't pinpoint any specific activity that causes it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

RangeMax NEXT Wireless-N USB Adapter WN111 (Marvell Nic or Netgear) is highly outdated.

Update it from the manufacturer's website.
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\NETGEAR WN111 Smart Wizard
AVG is a known network blocker. Uninstall AVG using AVG Remover. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Also, as the network adapter is an USB one, check for the USB drivers, too. Here it is ....
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\NEC Electronics\USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver
And that is very old, too.

Try to update it from Support/Design | Renesas Electronics.

Uninstall PeerBlock; at least as a test.

Let us know the results.

Perfectly. I've been debating when to mark as solved. I couldn't find updates to WN111x.sys, but I was able to do everything else that you suggested. Not a single BSOD since. I will mark solved for now, and hopefully I won't be back.

Thanks again for all of your help.
