Windows 7: BSOD error OS Version: 6.1.7601. on my 2009 Acer Aspire

BSOD error OS Version: 6.1.7601. on my 2009 Acer Aspire

I need to restore my Acer sanity! Can you advise? I was maintaining the system updates when the crash error started. I have run the updated M Essentials, malware bytes, and Spybot to check for bugs. Nothing. I have done 3 system restores that have not removed the problem. I re- updated again after and it crashed again.
Oh, I also had my Black berry software removed as it was the last big item I installed.

I have run your the dm log the Zip file is attached.
Can you help with this issue? The full error numbers are a little different than the top of the page so I am including them here:

The WiFi driver is causing the BSODs, and that one that you have installed is not suggested to use. Get the driver version from here: Drivers for Atheros AR5007EG and Windows 7
Save the download on your desktop.

Now uninstall the NameQualcomm Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter driver as follows:
  1. Click the Start Button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Start Menu Search box and press Enter.
  2. Double click to expand "Network adaptors", search for the said device there.
  3. Right click on it and click Uninstall.
  4. Check "Delete driver software for this device" check box, click OK.
Now Install the driver already downloaded. Follow Driver Install - Device Manager.

Do exactly how it stated. First download, then uninstall and then install.

Report us for any further BSOD after doing it.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arg1: 0000001c, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
Arg3: 00000001, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: 8240f71e, address which referenced memory
