    Random BSOD thought it was memory but I was wrong


    Hey guys here I am once again.
    Ive been using this PC for a while Windows 7 home premium and it suddenly started getting a bsod randomly. Doing nothing specific when it happens. Thought I narrowed it down to memory so I changed it out and it was working ok. But now its doing it again with the same error. I have attached the log files. As always thanks in advance for the help.

    Use the Avast Uninstall Utility to completely uninstall Avast and then download and install Microsoft Security Essentials.

    This is a Win7 system. You will likely receive more expert help at Windows 7 Help Forums

    Several Live Kernel Events recently. Please do the following:
    - open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
    - expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
    - right click on Administrative Events
    - select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
    - save the file as Admin.evtx
    - zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
    - upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

    While waiting for a reply, please monitor your temps with this free utility: HWMonitor CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

    The last 3 memory dumps (3 in the last 3 months) blame your wireless networking drivers. Please:
    - download a fresh set of the latest, Win7SP1 compatible wireless networking drivers
    - uninstall the current drivers
    - install the freshly downloaded drivers
    - monitor for further BSOD's

    Beyond this, I have these 3 suggestions:
    1. Get ALL available Windows Updates. It may take several trips to get them all
    2. Start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics
    3. If all of the hardware tests pass, then run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :
