3 BSOD's in 24 hours after installing Windows Updates

No problems with this machine prior to this.

Brand: Acer
Model: Aspire 5742
Processor: Intel Core i5-450M
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit)

Minidumps and Report from jcgriff's program attached. No perfmon report as I got errors trying to generate it... not sure why

Very grateful for any assistance - thanks in advance!

One of your problems is:
HTML Code:
GT-I9100    USB\VID_04E8&PID_6860&MS_COMP_MTP&SAMSUNG_ANDROID\7&34D0292C&2&0000    This device cannot start.
As a test, de-install.

You also have some problems with Windows Update
Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.
For help or reset see: Windows Update - Reset
Your dump shows problems with a network driver from Atheros. Please check and install newest here:
Problem driver: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\athrx.sys

But, as I find multiple strange Samsung drivers that are causing problems, I suspect that de-installing your smartphone or whatever it is... will help.

Thanks! I've updated the drivers and I seem to be OK. No BSOD's since then, so fingers crossed the problem has been sorted.
