Windows 7: Random BSODs [+NETIO.sys, afd.sys, tcpip.sys]

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSODs [+NETIO.sys, afd.sys, tcpip.sys]

Just after upgrading to Windows 8 x64 I started getting some BSODs while on Windows.

I have already tried to update the LAN driver according to Asus's recommendation, but it didn't helped at all.

EDIT: It usually happens when I'm doing whatever on Windows, but it's quite common if I'm using YouTube on Opera.

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

Your reports hint at hardware, but may also be a driver. Lets start here
Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because
Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Random BSODs with netio.sys always being pointed to
Okay so, I've been trying to fix issues with my computer for a good while now. Used to be where it'd crash almost every time I tried to do anything. Was able to trace it to a power supply issue.

BSODs- tcpip.sys and netio.sys the most common culprits
Over the last week or so, I've had 22 BSODs, out of which most signified errors with tcpip.sys and netio.sys. I followed the advice of a user with a similar problem and set up a static IP through the IPv4 properties of my network adapter, which was a potential solution for fixing the netio.sys...
