The computer is more stable, me, not so much.
It ran all day today unattended, logged on to Steam. No problems. I guess getting the correct mobo drivers for the LAN and/or disabling the onboard LAN did the trick unless it was some kind of 'burn in' issue (never happened to me before, I've built a lot of machines) but each has it's own challenges. I'll set up the new adapter when I get around to it, or if things go south again, but I think I'm out of the woods for now. CASE CLOSED. Thanks to all for your support.

Just an update, and I posted this elsewhere. The Atheros drivers were associated with my D-Link PCI wireless network adapter. Since I could not identify the chipset on this particular card, I could not identify on the Atheros web site what 'family' of drivers to try so I bailed on the card, installed it in a Vista machine that I have and bought a USB wireless adapter for my Win 7 machine. Atheros drivers seem to be problems regularly here so chipset ID is key in order to even attempt driver upgrades.

Case closed, green check mark, best to all

Thanks for the follow on update. I know that the Atheros drivers can be a real PITA. You made the best move.
