BSOD installing World of Warcraft

I'm installing WoW for the first time on this computer and I keep getting BSOD saying "Worker thread returned at bad IRQL" around 30% completion.

I've updated all of my drivers, ran virus scans, turned off firewalls, and done general maintenance but nothing seems to work. Tried to follow other BSOD posts to fix the issue but they don't seem to work. Somebody please help me!

Computer specs: Acer Aspire 8951G, Windows 7 64-bit, Intel I7 2.00Ghz, 8.00 GB RAM
Not sure if I'm attaching the dump reports correctly but they should be below i think....

Security App

Crashes indicate McAdee being a possible cause. Remove McAfee and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials to see if it provides more stability. Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software. Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes are recommended from a strict BSOD perspective. They do not cause blue screens on the system as other AV products do.

Microsoft Security Essentials, Free antivirus for windows and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
