Windows 7: BSOD after hour of use, (3B, 7F)

BSOD after hour of use, (3B, 7F)

Okay, I have to type this fast before another BSOD.

Over a week ago, I bought a new graphics card and power supply, specifically, a EVGA 660 GTX OC, and a Thermaltike 600w. Ever since then, I've been getting BSOD's an hour or two after booting up. Usually, Chrome will crash first, then the computer freezes up to the point where I can't do anything for about a minute. The fancy Windows Aero graphics turn off, and then BSOD. Funny thing is, if I click my mouse alot during the freezing, it speeds up the BSOD.

At first, all I got were 3B errors. To fix this, I tried a few things, and then decided to reformat my PC to factory settings. The 3B errors continued though, and lately I've seen 7F errors. All of my free time out of work has been spent trying to fix this damn PC over the past week, hours of "googling" and research. I've tried Memtest86, chkdsk, and windows diagnostics with no errors. I've returned my video card for a new one, same errors. I bought Driver Navigator to help update drivers, and I've left the side of my case open in case of overheating issues.

I'm getting so sick of all this.... so now, instead of lurking the forums, I've decided to start my own thread to see if someone could help resolve this. If I don't get back right away I apologize, I'm working a 16 hour shift in a couple hours.

Also, for some reason, the dump dates aren't in order, so check the dates.

Code:
crash dump file: E:\Debug1\050613-198433-01.dmp
uptime: 01:19:29
This was probably caused by the following module: ae1000w7.sys (ae1000w7+0x41D75) 
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF880046C7D75, 0xFFFFF8800682C620, 0x0)
Error: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
Bug check description: This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code. 
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. 
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: ae1000w7.sys .
Code:
AE1000       Linksys AE1000 Driver  Kernel        6/7/2011 7:40:42 PM
Lets start with this:

Do you use a Linksys AE1000 wireless adaptor? Download the latest driver from the link below, then uninstall the existing driver, then install the download driver and reboot.

Believe it or not, I already installed the latest driver. But, I reinstalled just in case. Fingers crossed.

EDIT- I've noticed my PC becoming slower to boot up lately, not sure if that means anything.

I see you're running Avast and Norton Internet Security . Uninstall both of these programs and Install MSE instead

MSE Download Link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=231277

Also you would want to uncheck everything inside the Startup Tab inside MSCONFIG.

To get to MSCONFIG. Click on the type MSCONFIG inside Search programs and files box. Press <ENTER> when you see MSCONFIG under Programs (1) . If you get a User Access Control window click on the Yes button. Uncheck everything listed in the STARTUP TAB and click on Apply button then OK button then click on Exit without Restart . Restart the PC manually.

Tip   Tip
You ONLY want Antivirus running when the PC boots up

Okay, so my computer froze up again after installing the ae1000 driver, but didn't get to blue screen, so I manually shut it down. Worth a try, though.

I uninstalled Norton and Avast, downloaded MSE, and unchecked everything in the startup tab, which helped a little, but it's still slower than it used to be. Next time I BSOD, I'll post it up. Thanks, the help is greatly appreciated.

No threats detected on full scan. At least the good news is I haven't had a BSOD in over two hours... which is longer than average. Don't want to jinx myself.
