Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Bsod - driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

I have been random getting BSOD, sometimes its twice a day other times it wont happen for weeks apart.

I've tried updating all my drivers after the program BlueScreenView said the problem is the Qualcomm driver (Qualcomm Atheros Ar81xx series PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller) but after I did this the problem still continued.

I've attached the zip file for you guys :)

Hello cannedelf, I will try to help you. You only had 2 dump files, but this is what they say.

start             end                 module name
fffff880`0538d000 fffff880`053af000   L1C62x64 T (no symbols)

That is your Atheros NIC driver and as you can see, needs to be updated from your motherboards web site.

That is NovaShield Kernel Network Module driver Believed to be a part of BullGuard Internet Security

That is your Agnitum Firewall Driver 
Followup: MachineOwner
I would uninstall Bullguard and the Firewall program if they are not connected and replace them with
Microsoft Security Essentials (Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows)
And use Windows Firewall. Try those and see if your results are not improved.
