Windows 7: BSoD when installing Atheros Wifi driver

I'm not sure about the DPCs, you may try and download the version before last (Version: 10.0.0.227) | Drivers for Atheros AR5B97 and Windows 7

What about the BSODs?

I tried the one you linked me, but I couldn't install it, because i got a BSOD, and everytime I tried to restart the system, it gave me the same. Luckily i could solve the booting problem, but I made no progress overall.

Run another instance of the SF-Diagnostics Tool and upload the new .zip file.

So the driver verifier has ran for like 15-20 hours constantly, and surprisingly it didn't crash once. Although, there were some problems with the audio, like pops and cracks.

What drivers did you select?

Run an elevated command prompt
Start Menu> CMD - right click and Run as administrator.

In the command window, type in verifier /query
hit Enter and post a screenshot of the window.

Here you go. The list was pretty long, so as you can see I edited the pictures together.

Let Driver Verifier run for another day.
I can see that athrx.sys and igdkmd64.sys drivers are most active,
give it time and see if the updates worked.

Can you please upload a new instance of the MSINFO32 file?

Start> RUN> "MSINFO32" without the quotes then hit [Enter].
In "MSINFO32" go to, File> Save> name it your user-name and upload.
