Windows 7: random BSOD crashes several times a day

random BSOD crashes several times a day

I'm having random crashes of my relatively new Windows 7 PC. It started about a week ago, and I have no idea what to do. Everything was absolutely fine before that, and no new hardware/software was installed that could have caused it. This PC was bought about a month ago, basically brand new.

Can anyone help? Minidump attached.

This crash was caused by your nwifi.sy, which is part of win 7. Because it is an OS file I would run a system file check
to do that type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow (note the space between sfc and "/")

Let us know the results

Thanks Ken,

I ran the system file check, and got clean results, no integrity violations.

Would nwifi.sys have anything to do with my wireless dongle? Its a Zyxel G-202, doesn't have Windows 7 drivers, I'm using old vista/xp drivers. But it was working fine for a month before with no issues...

I've got a minidump of the crash prior to the one I uploaded, would it help taking a look at that or would they be identical?
