Windows 7 BSOD DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009F - update driver

My Windows 7 PC is suffering the BSOD error shown above and the dump shows it's related to the ntoskrnl.exe driver.  The error always arises when the machine has closed down after a long period of inactivity.

Much of the advice online suggests updating the driver in case something has become corrupted

How do I do that without reinstalling Windows as a whole?

It looks like a problem with your Avira Antivirus utility. Check the Avira site for bug-fixes or updates, or uninstall Avira and install something else instead.

I use Panda Cloud Antivirus and am very happy with it. If your PC is for personal use (not a company PC), you can use the free version.
