Random BSoD in Win7

I just changed from an awesome 6 year-old WinXP install to Win7 (clean install on a fully formatted drive) 2 days back and everything seems to be going dandy. But I was riddled by this BSoD problem from day 1. I figured it might go away on its own after updating everything to latest MS updates and drivers but it hasn't.

Ok, here goes:

The BSoD happens seemingly randomly, I can remember the words "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and "tcpip.sys" from it - the rest seem like code and safe mode instructions and address ranges. The BSoD seems to proceed to dump the memory into the hard drive and the system restarts at 100.

I googled and found this topic here and was mighty impressed by the clear instructions you guys gave to fix it and hope I can get some similar help :D (unless the problem can only be fixed by replacement of hardware or reinstalling ... which I really hope isn't the problem)

As asked in that thread, I've attached my zipped C:\WINDOWS\Minidump folder.

Thanks for any help!
