back in april I got the same BSOD: BSOD playing battlefield 4

How can I get rid of this BSOD? I got the correct drivers for my network adapter. (from my mobo's website)

Please search for "msinfo32" (without quotes) and press enter,
  • save it as msinfo32.nfo,
  • in explorer go to the directory where it is saved,
  • right click the msinfo32.nfo file,
  • choose 'send to' or 'copy to',
  • choose 'compressed (zipped) folder',
  • upload the zip file.

Unfortunately the file is corrupt, again.

 System File Check

Please try following:
  • Open an admin command prompt
  • Copy/paste "sfc /scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
  • When it is finished reboot your system
  • Open again an admin command prompt
  • Enter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow says "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Make a photo of the result and post it.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

I uploaded the log anyway, if you wanna take a look at it.

Could it have anything to do with me hosting a wireless network on my pc using a network adapter pretty much all the time? I use it to connect to the internet with my smartphone.

(made the network with "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=NAME key=PASSWORD")

Network adapters have been known for causing BSODs in the past, I personally haven't seen any trouble with network adapters recently but that's no reason to exclude them as a possible cause.

Would've been great if we had some sort of proof showing directly what's wrong.
Having this wifi in my room is kinda crucial, as long as the blue screens appear 1-2 times a year I'll be fine I guess.
If the blue screens were very frequent I could just stop using it for a day or two but that's unfortunately not the case.

Anyhow, thank you for your assistance! I appreciate it.

Have a nice day

We may be able to find the root cause, it may take some trial and error.

In reference to the network adapter, it is important to keep the drivers up to date.
