It will help if you can post the info following these instructions,

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Here's some info on athrx.sys,

Atheros network adapter driver

Driver Reference Table - athrx.sys

Although without further info, it's hard to diagnose or recommend the correct driver.

A member of the BSOD team should be along when they see this and you've provided more info.

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\athrx.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for athrx.sys

Probably caused by : athrx.sys ( athrx+5c8c1 )

Followup: MachineOwner
As you already knew from your title athrx.sys is being blamed.

Your driver is from 2009,

Code:
Driver	c:\windows\system32\drivers\athrx.sys (2.0.0.74, 1.33 MB (1,394,688 bytes), 19/06/2009 10:09 PM)
Try updating your driver from here,

Drivers for Atheros AR9485 and Windows 7

Using this method in this tutorial,

Driver Install - Device Manager

When browsing for the drivers on your computer, point it to the unzipped folder you downloaded above.
