Windows 7: Random crashes on freshly installed Windows 7

Random crashes on freshly installed Windows 7

In a nutshell, I had a PC with a Windows 7 install for the last two years that had a motherboard go bad. I ended up buying a Tigerdirect combo (hardware specifics below) and just decided to reuse the case with my original install drive. After taking some time to retune itself to new drivers, the computer kept freezing at random times. In some other forums on this site, I thought it driver related (even though I had updated everything including new MB bios). To make things easier, I installed a new 80GB SSD drive and put in a fresh install of Windows 7. Have updated everything to the nines and avoided adding any additional software until I had data and stuff organized from my previous install. However, the randome gremlin seems to have come back at random times.

I've tried setting memory frequency from auto to the speed in the BIOS, but found this thread and have attached the BSOD zip file for some help. Any thoughts on what is the issue? It may be a hardware problem, but I have run memtest on the memory and just can't seem to find the culprit.

MB = MSI H61M-P23
Processor = Intel Core i3-2100
Memory = Patriot 4GB DDR3

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)

Hello Mongo & welcome! - All apologizes for my delayed answer.

Your dump was fairly easy to handle. It's caused by the L1C62x64.sys and the module is named Atheros NIC driver. Not sure, but I think it's coming from the Bullgard Antivirus. Are you using Bullguard? Can you see this driver listed in your Control Panel?

If you're using Bullguard download this tool, and instead of it, use MSSE.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.
Arg1: fffff9801b82ae80, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
Arg4: fffff880048819e6, address which referenced memory

Hello Fred,

Thanks for reply. Odd thing is that I have the latest driver from MSI and I'm already using MSSE.

I have to say that I have not always gotten BSOD. That was one instance. Usually, the thing with just lock up at random times during random events. Usually when left on for a while. I have disabled the sleep modes, but could that be the culprit?
