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.

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

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.
