    All three minidumps are 0xD1 errors and these are caused by either faulty drivers or buggy software.

    The driver cited as the probable cause is athrxusb.sys and there is very little on the net concerning this but what I have been able to find out it is a driver by Atheros Communications and it has to do with wireless network adapters.

    It also appears that Vista and this driver have had issues.

    Either uninstall and reinstall your wireless software or update.
