BSOD usually when browsing on Firefox

Intermittent freezing which sometimes unfreezes, sometimes doesn't thus requiring a restart. Sometimes brings up a BSOD. Really annoying, any help would be appreciated.

Wow, that's genius the way you've identified what caused it. Never would have guessed that.

I've installed the new driver and will report back if the problem happens again!

I just got the freezing thing again, shame, because I assumed it would be caused by the same thing that caused the BSOD.

1) Uninstall the driver.
Then use | Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

2) Remove the adapter for a couple of days.
if it continues to BSOD and freeze we will narrow it down.

The file you uploaded contains the same dump as before, so nothing new to analyze.

You're right, sorry about that. I don't know why there isn't a new dump file considering I had a BSOD yesterday.
