Ok guys I've got a problem with BSOD on my new PC and I don't know what causes it or how to deal with it. If anyone can help me out would appreciate very much.

my PC specs:
processor: -INTEL COREI5 2500K 3.1G 6MB BOX
Mboard: -ASROCK P67 EXTREME4 (B3) GEN3
video-card: -Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti (GV-N560OC-1GI)
Ram: -CORSAIR 8GB (2X4) DDR3 1600 CL9 VENGEANCE CML8GX3M2A1600C9
HD: -SSD CRUCIAL M4 128GB
PCI-Network card: -TP-LINK WIRELESS PC CARD 300MBPS
Cooler: -SCYTHE MUGEN 3 SCMG-3000
Power Supply: -COOLER MASTER SILENT PRO M600
Case: -FRACTAL DESIGN DEFINE R3 BLACK PEARL USB 3.0

It's running on: WIN 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Description of the problem:

I just got a new pc and installed win7 on it. Everything seemed fine until I started to use the internet. I am getting BSOD's mostly when I use Utorrent download program. However I have also got a BSOD when just playing League of Legends and talking through a mic on windows live messenger. I'm using a BlueScreenView program to view the reports afterwards and most reports say Caused By Driver: athrx.sys. These reports in particular emerge when I use the Utorrent program. But I have also a report saying Caused By Driver: tcpip.sys.

Update: I've read that athrx.sys is associated with the Atheros WLAN card, but since I was using TP-LINK (yes I know it's a funny name) and NOT Atheros I figured it wasn't caused by my TP-LINK card. So I looked in Device Maneger and found that for some reason my pc shows another network device by the name of Realtek Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller. I figured it must be an on board LAN adapter and since I don't use one, I disabled it thinking that it must be somehow associated with the Atheros driver. But then I was still getting the BSOD's and my hopes of finding the cause again plunged. But as I am writing this post to you guys I wanted to be thorough and enlist all my pc specs. So I went to the manufacturers website where I bought my pc and checked all the correct names for for all the specs, and much to my surprise the description of my TP-LINK network card states among other things Chipset: Atheros. So I am guessing that TP-LINK uses Atheros technology? :)

bellow I is a link to all the dump files.

Hope someone can help me out, pls pls pls anyone help me would appreciate SOOO MUCH!! :yes: Thanks in advance to all !

Cheers,

Hans!!

Hi,

thanks for the reply but I have not posted any links to warez groups, the link is to 2shared where I uploaded the dumps. What I meant was to say that I am running torrent from piratebay on my pc. "Pioneer One" to be precise. I want to emphasize it because the errors occurred mostly during downloading via utorrent. But now you mention it I think it is kinda misleading so maybe it's better i delete it. I thought it's better to be very specific on the details so it's easier for people to figure out the cause. Anyway thanks for the heads up!

Hans
