How to fix tcpip.sys blue screen on Windows?

Issue: Hello. I looked everywhere for an answer, but I could not find it.

Issue: The problem first started last weekend with a BSOD while Hitman Absolution stopped responding. I tried opening task manager to quit the program, and the blue screen tcpip.sys popped up.

Issue: Fast forward, with random blue screens every day. The surest way to reproduce the blue screen is by opening up Task Manager immediately after logging in to the account. The task manager will “hang” with a loading circle for about 2 seconds, before blue screening. Help me!
