Windows 7 Proffesional x64
BSOD during normal use, becoming increasing regular

Windows 7 Professional x64 bit
Installed via upgrade of a Windows 7 install, full retail version.
System less than 2 months old as is the OS install.

Getting blue screen an increasing amount at the moment, noted that ndis.sys was mentioned on the BSOD. No real pattern to when it happens, has happened once on reboot from standby but also whilst in normal operation.

Many thanks,

Hello Raining and welcome!

Either delete your Atheros Wireless USB Network Adapter, or update it.

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff88001920d70, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff8800a2200f8, Exception Record Address
Arg4: fffff8800a21f950, Context Record Address

In addition to FredeGails excellent analysis (do what he suggests) just some old drivers that need updating

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Wow fast reply, thankyou!
I've got a second wireless adapter so I'll give that a try, if not then I'll run an ethernet cable through and eliminate wireless all together.
