Windows 7: BSoD when installing Atheros Wifi driver

BSoD when installing Atheros Wifi driver

I tried to update my Atheros Wireless Adapter's driver, but when I run the installer, it gives me a BSoD. I downloaded the driver from atheros.cz, so there should be no problem. I have an AR5B97, the old driver's version is 10.0.0.227, the new is 10.0.0.234, and my OS is Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Hi there .. What was the problem with your WiFi ? Was the old Driver not working .. Some times updating Drivers is not always the best policy

NDIS.sys caused high DPC latency spikes.
I have some other problems with the spikes too, but that's an other question.

Edit: The Driver Update Utility said there was a newer version available for the Graphics card and the Chipset, so I installed them.

Good, now it's a waiting game to see if it's really the Wireless Network adapter's fault.

Post back with updates .

Well, as I said, I installed both of them, and according to DPC Latency Checker, I still get the spikes.
