Random "Special Pool" BSOD's During General Use

Hi all,

I have a long history of BSOD's with this computer during startup but I eventually discovered (also with the help of this forum) that they were caused by my DeathAdder mouse. BSOD's during startup have vanished.

Instead, they have been replaced with BSOD's during the use of Skype, Microsoft Word, LOTRO or anything else I might have running. There's no pattern that I can discern except the BSOD's originate under the Special Pool flag. I have previously turned on Driver Verifier to help get some additional detail in my dump files.

At this point, the best I can tell the BSODs point to my Webcam and NVIDIA drivers both of which are absolutely current and have been so for some time. I've reached the point where I need some assistance from someone with a lot more expertise in parsing out system info.

Thanks in advance for the help!
