Windows 7: BSOD Everyday, usually while Firefox is on

BSOD Everyday, usually while Firefox is on

Every day, I receive a blue screen as DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I cannot take it anymore. Rarely, sometimes once every 2 weeks or so, it will come as a BSOD "swarm". It will cause a BSOD, then everytime I restart my computer, it crashes again, and goes on for about 3 or 4 times before stopping. The BSODs usually happen while on Youtube while a video is buffering and while Firefox is running. I have recently updated my graphics drivers, too.

While fixing the problem, I would like to avoid opening the computer and fiddling with the motherboard and other things inside or messing with the BIOS because I don't want to cause even more damage.

I am using Windows 7 64 bit full retail.

Are you using a Linksys, NetGear, DLink or Marvell Wireless USB Network Adapter? If so, update the driver associated with it.

Enable Driver Verifier. Enabling this should hopefully crash your system and then point to the faulty driver that is causing problems. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Make sure all Windows updates are installed including the latest Service Pack.

BSOD - Everyday
Hi, I've been experiencing alot of BSODs to the point where I cannot boot my system. I'd have to boot from disc and run a memory test and then it would work fine until the next crash. Im very new to this, and have no idea what is causing it. Can somebody please help? Thanks.
