lpzdlo1228, I've looked at some of your dump files and each one seems to give me a different reason for the crash. That is not really normal.

Code:
lmvm bflwfx64
start             end                 module name
fffff880`03ead000 fffff880`04000000   bflwfx64 T (no symbols)

That is your Bigfoot Networks Bandwidth Control Wireless NDIS Light Weight Filter driver. There is no way I have found to update that driver. The bigfoot web site is not in service, so it seems they have either gone out of business or someone else has taken them over, which I can't find yet. Or if it is a part of your Motherboard, your motherboard web site may have an updated driver.

Code:
lmvm tap0901
start             end                 module name

That could be several things but I think most likely it is a P2P VPN UTorrent application

Code:
lmvm avgtdia
start             end                 module name

That is AVG TDI driver

Your graphics driver. Download the latest WHQL driver from Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 or if it is the same, redownload it. Uninstall the current driver then follow these instructions onlt selecting ATI Display Drivers
Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling the install the new drivers, selecting custom install and only install the components you normally use. Nothing is required other than the display driver. CCC is not required as the audio/HDMI drivers are not required as your motherboard has those drivers and it just adds drivers that may conflict with each other.

Open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

Problem 1:

Uninstall it and reboot or contact the supplier for an updated version.

I may be wrong, but I'm beginning to think Bigfoot was bought out by Atheros. Bigfoot no longer exists, at least their web site can't be found.

It just confirms what I found. 2 heads are better than one.

I got an error when trying the site so it's probably toast.

unintalled the display drivers and the bigfoot (atheros) drivers and installed the latest ones. I did the "sfc /scan - then restart" a couple of times and after the fourth time I still get the "found corrupt files but was unable to fix them"

What type of loader did you use to get your system to activate?
