Windows 7: BSOD Caused by NDIS.SYS Driver!

BSOD Caused by NDIS.SYS Driver!

I've had this laptop for a couple of years now. Last year I took it to a repair shop for a BSOD (I don't remember what caused it) and they had to install a fresh new HDD to it. Badly, they didn't verify my Windows 7 software, and after I noticed the shop refused to validate it! So for a year I carried a laptop without a validated Windows 7 copy (when I bought it it had the same OS, I tried to look for the validation number in the laptop but it was to worn of to recognize the code). So now, I got a BSOD a couple of days ago. It states DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL caused by the file ndis.sys. I attached my diagnostic to this post... I can't access my computer on any way but safe mode (without internet), as suggested by an engineer I know I removed most of the drivers concerned with the network adapter (both the wireless and wired ones), but it didn't help. Please help!

Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software. Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes are recommended from a strict BSOD perspective. They do not cause blue screens on the system as other AV products do.

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO
