Windows 7: BSOD when connected to internet (13 October 2012)

BSOD when connected to internet (13 October 2012)

I hope I was successfull in following the correct steps to upload the file.

I keep having a recurrent BSOD crash always when internet connection is enable (=if internet connection is disable, this crash never occurs). No program in particular seems to trigger the BSOD.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Hello and welcome to SF Mala,

Your BSoDs are of 9/20 and 9/22 2012. Did you get more after that?
The BSoDs were caused by Atheros Network Drivers
Look for a possible driver update: Driver Reference Table

Also suggest you to uninstall the Norton programs you have, they're known to cause BSoDs
Start Menu\Programs\Norton Security Scan	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Norton Security Scan	Public
Start Menu\Programs\Norton Online Backup	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Norton Online Backup	Public
Norton Removal Tool
MSE is good.
