Irql bsod

I get the "IRQL not less or equal" BSOD about 7/10 times I boot my machine.
Not sure how to read dmp files on my own to determine whats going on. Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.

Attached is the dmp file.

I see the BSODs started on June 15, 2010. SPTD was installed on May 24, 2010.

No dumps are saved, although one is written every time. I suspect CCleaner is deleting them. Please remove CCleaner for the time being.

Tons of Windows Updates are failing, possible network issue. Start by updating your Atheros NIC drivers.

Along those lines, remove Norton and McAfee software. Use their respective removal tools.

McAfee: http://download.mcafee.com/products/...tches/MCPR.exe

Norton: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...moval_Tool.exe

Update your Atheros Ethernet drivers as well.

Atheros Downloads: Atheros Communications

Uninstall Daemon Tools Lite, as it is using SPTD. SPTD is notorious for causing crashes in Vista and 7 systems. Remove SPTD when you're done, using this tool: http://www.duplexsecure.com/download...t-v174-x64.exe

What USB devices do you have attached?
Code:
Fault bucket X64_0xA_nt!KeStackAttachProcess+115, type 0

Fault bucket X64_0xFE_USBPORT_SYNC_ISSUE_usbhub!Usbh_PCE_Disable_Action+4f1, type 0

No external USB devices attatched.
I will follow your suggestions, in the mean time though, is there a reliable alternative to Daemon Tools that I could use without getting this problem again?

Not sure exactly how I am supposed to be updating the Atheros drivers. Device Manager says the drivers are up to date, but I am supposed to be using those download links on the Atheros driver page?
