BSOD when connecting to a wifi network

- OS: Win7 Home Premium x64
- the original installed OS on the system? Yes
- an OEM or full retail version? It was OEM, then I reinstalled with a version downloaded from the internet (I have the serial key)
- What is the age of system (hardware)? 2 months
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) I've reinstalled the OS 1 day ago
- CPU: Intel Core i5 M460 2.53 GHz
- Video Card: Intel HD Graphics
- MotherBoard: ID: 63-0100-000001-00101111-010910-Chipset$0AAAA000_BIOS DATE: 01/09/10 15:17:22 VER: 08.00.10
- Power Supply - brand & wattage: Dell (doesn't say how many watts is)

Problem: BSOD only when connecting to a specific, unprotected wireless network in a matter of minutes (may vary between 1 minute to 15 minutes).

What I have tried: Before formatting: tried some free registry correctors and restoring system. After formatting, I updated the BIOS, and reinstalled/updated the following drivers: chipset, video, sata, ethernet and wlan. Minidump files from 3 BSODs are attached.

Safe mode with network: no BSOD so far (it has been 1 hour since I connected to the wifi network).

What says the BSOD: "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer"
3rd BSOD STOP code: 0x0000007F (0X0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050031, 0X00000000000006F8, 0xFFFFF80002A8C798)
5th and last BSOD: 0x0000007F (0X0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050031, 0X00000000000006F8, 0xFFFFF80002A3A798)

Description: For 2 months since I got this laptop I had no problems using wired and wifi networks. But just when I brought my laptop to mom's place, where I will be living for 2 months, I'm getting
BSOD everytime I try to connect to the wifi network here. The last 2 BSODs occurred 1 minute after I connected to the wifi network, but the others time varied.
When my wifi adapter is on, but not connected to any network, everything works fine. I get no BSOD or any other errors.
Before formatting, and after the firsts BSODs I've got a file called mfewfpk.sys corrupted, that seems to be related to McAfee antivirus. No viruses were detected by it and Malware Bytes Antimalware.
As I couldn't find any solution, I formatted everything, but the problem still occurs.
Other laptops and computers connected to the wifi network, each with different OS (like the one I'm using, which is WinXP Home Edition SP2), work fine.
What should I do now?

Memory dump files, with perfmon and autoruns reports, attached.

Re: BSOD when connecting to a wifi network

It might be due to anti-virus that is installed in your computer and that is the reason that you are getting this problem. If you want to check that then just disable that and check if it is showing you the same result. If that is the problem then you can switch to the Microsoft Security Essentials and that will not cause problem for you. Other than this, you can also refer to this thread. They have also discussed about the same thing. I hope that this will solve the problem for you.

Re: BSOD when connecting to a wifi network

Thank you, Luis. Actually, that thread was opened by me, also haha. Camila is my real name.
In any case, ZoneAlarm was the problem. I uninstalled it and the BSODs stopped. I changed to Comodo Firewall. ANtivirus is still the same, Avira, but I intend to change back to McAfee, which I've acquired an year license at the time I purchased the laptop. I also installed SP1 :-)
Thank you for your response ^_^

Correction: I've already seen that thread before posting here. In any case, thank you.
