Atheros network adapter driver is one of the elements causing the BSOD here.

Search for AR938X in the list of ATHEROS Wireless drivers for Windows , download and install it.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
  • Double click to open it.
  • Click this button only:
  • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Update your ATI/AMD display driver.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.

During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

All your recent crashes gives this prima facie output ...

Probably caused by : Unknown_Image ( ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE )

So, you need to have a look at STOP 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT troubleshtg, too.

McAfee is one of the most frequent BSOD causers.
Start Menu\Programs\McAfee
Uninstall McAfee Using McAfee Removal Tool. For windows 8, inbuilt windows defender is enough. If you want, you may use Avast free, too; but never McAfee.

These tow things ... why both of them?
Start Menu\Programs\MagicDisc
Start Menu\Programs\MagicISO
All the ISO image mounter programs are problematic .... and you have three of them installed .... Is it a must to have them? You may use 7-zip, which extracts all the disc images, so the basic job will be equally done. At a maximum, you may miss some DVD menu screens, and nothing more at all. Better you get rid of all them.

Let us know the results.
