I get a BSOD everytime I try to open an attachment in Outlook 2010.

I get a BSOD everytime I try to open an attachment in Outlook 2010.  I noticed that SEP also flagged two low level viruses at about the same time.  After attempting to clean up the files that were infected and dealing with the attachment issue, I started to think they were related. I could not complete a full scan using SEP or MalwareBytes.  Both crashed and caused the computer to blue screen also.  The blue screen files indicate Netsws00.sys was the cause of the bluescreen.  I can't find any driver that was updated recently and Device Manager looks all clear. Any thoughts?

First run a complete scan with SEP and eliminate any viruses. Then uninstall Office 2010, restart the computer and reinstall Office 2010. Get the service packs for Office 2010, update and then patch.

Now try opening attachments again.

If you continue to have problems, make a new Windows Test profile (User account), log in and try Outlook in the new user account. The virus could have damaged the Windows profile.

From what I have read this Netsws00.sys  BSOD could be caused by outdated drivers for the wireless modem check the drivers year please.
If no updates are available you may have to buy a new one.
What is the wireless modem you have? OS and type of computer desktop laptop brand name?
