TCPIP.SYS Related BSOD on Win 7 x64

Hey all:

For the past week or two, I've been getting BSOD mostly related to the tcpip.sys file. My hunch is that it is related to something else, but I'm not sure what to do to troubleshoot it. Attached are the most recent minidumps from the errors. I've tried using the Microsoft Debugging Viewer, but I don't know what I'm doing. That's where you come in!

So you know, there are four programs on my computer that (conceivably) interface with the network adapters: COMODO Firewall, Avast! Free AV, VirtualBox, and Cisco VPN client. At least one of the minidumps you'll notice is related to the Virtualbox Driver, but I think that is because, when that crash happened, VirtualBox was running. Both COMODO and Avast! are kept up-to-date automatically, so in theory, one of their updates could have caused the problem, but I don't know when exactly they've been updating. Also, I haven't used Cisco's VPN client in months, so I don't think that would be the problem.

I didn't installed any new system software or hardware before the problem started, though I have since installed a patch from Microsoft that could have fixed the problem by fixing a race condition between hooks (though that didn't fix the problem).

If you have any advice for me to fix these BSODs, or just some pointers on how to interpret minidump files, I'm all ears.

Thank you all very much,
