Windows 7: FireFox = Instant BSOD on 2 different Comps.

FireFox = Instant BSOD on 2 different Comps.

Hi

I have a problem. FireFox on both my laptop and my stationary comp triggers a BSOD instantly when started.
The stationary runs W7 Ultimate RTM 64-bit and the laptop W7 Pro Retail 32-bit, both from MSDNAA.

BSOD: BAD_POOL_HEADER

Firefox version is 3.5.2 I think.

Atleast on the laptop FireFox runs fine on XP.

I have Reinstalled FireFox (not saving anything, clean version) to no avail.

Since it's the same exact Blue screen on both machines I'm ruling out any hardware-problem.

Yesterday everything worked flawlessly on both computers.
6 hours ago FireFox stopped working on my laptop.
It still worked on my stationary until 30 mins ago when I rebooted it and it started there too.

I've searched all harddrives on the laptop with Macbytes MalwareBytes, SpyBot Search & Destroy and Avast! anti-virus with no results.

My guess is that some update to FireFox/W7 all of a sudden made
this happen, which only came into effect when I rebooted.

Anyone else have this? How could I solve it?

I've not experienced any issues with firefox myself, but I would recommend doing a search for Minefield. This is the daily build of Firefox and it's much faster on Windows 7 than Firefox 3.5 was. Nearly every plug in that I regularly use seems to work fine to.

Might get you past this problem.

Event viewer has no critical errors liste but 341 "Info"'s and a few Warnings that has to do with forced restart when avast! downloaded stuff.
