    I updated the wifi driver but the driver version in the device manager seems to be an older one 15.6.The new one is 17.x. Also when i try enabling it,it causes a BSOD.

    You have to keep trying them out until you find the one that your system works fine with.

    Should i just uninstall that driver through device manager and install the new one?

    It probably won't let you do it any other way.

    So the BSODs were due to the Nvidia streaming service and the wifi drivers???

    Wifi drivers, there was a mention of Kernel security check failure so your AV might have played the part in that mess too.

    I cant seem to update the wifi driver but when i try to run Battlefield 4, it loads the level for some time and my laptop suddenly restarts.

    That might be happening because of the overheating. Monitor your PC using Speccy. Then when in game, Alt Tab back to the desktop and check the temps.
