    Your Atheros Wireless LAN driver is causing issues. Update it here.

    Thank you very much BooZad for your answer.

    Yes. If that stops the BSODs that could well be your answer.

    How many windowsupdates has your system. Most windows 8 systems have 160 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL availableupdates (it may take several trips to get them all)

    Many windows systemdrivers of you are from early or mid 2012 and (could) predates windows 8.

    Driver Description: Peer-to-Peer Tunneling ProtocolDriver Update Site: Windows Update

    Did you upgrade from windows 7.
