On Wed 26/06/2013 12:28:52 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: E:\BSOD\062513-35271-01.dmp
uptime: 04:00:09
This was probably caused by the following module: athrx.sys (athrx+0xF1A6) 
Bugcheck code: 0xD5 (0xFFFFF98095194F48, 0x0, 0xFFFFF880042401A6, 0x0)
Error: DRIVER_PAGE_FAULT_IN_FREED_SPECIAL_POOL
Bug check description: This indicates that a driver has referenced memory which was earlier freed.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. 
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: athrx.sys .
This issue is caused by the Atheros WiFi driver. I recommend uninstalling this driver, then running Windows update over the wired connection. Windows update should detect the wireless card, and then install an appropriate driver automatically.

Let us know how you get on with that.
