Windows 7: BSOD about once a week, happends when I try to ALT TAB

BSOD about once a week, happends when I try to ALT TAB

Hello everyone,

I purchased a PC from my buddy about two years ago and have had this problem since I got it. I asked him about it and he said he couldn't figure it out but gave me some of my money back and let me keep the computer. This BSOD problem has been going on for a while and I have never made it into big issue because it would happen bout once a week but it seems to getting worse and worse. Anway, I have updated all the drivers using Uniblue driver scanner. I have not run memtest yet but will run it as soon as I pick up a usb flash drive from the store.

This problem seems to happen when I am playing a game and try to ALT-TAB, it also happened when I tried to close out of a program.

One more thing I have also ran the system file checker tool using the command prompt, the results were below and I have also attached the CBS.log file that the system pointed me to.

Any help would be great, thank you !

I can tell you from experience that most system service exceptions are caused by graphics drivers. However, you have the latest version and we'll let that be for now.

You do have an outdated network driver.

You appear to have the wrong network driver, you have a network driver for Atheros but your Wireless USB network adapter is Belkin.

Can you uninstall the network driver? I also need to know the exact model of your Network adapter, there should be a sticker.

Thanks, I will give this a try and check in to see if this changed anything with the BSOD.

My network driver model number is Belkin Wireless G, F5D7050.

It just happened again. When I tried to exit out of Mozilla Firefox and I got hit with the blue screen.

Note athrxusb is in my belkin files, I tried doing a clean install but it is still there.
