Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this? The system is well maintained and generally stable. I've tried unloading all the background apps including security programs (except for NIS). This is the only program that has failed in this way. TIA
We need the actual DMP files to tell but Symantec is often the problem. It is one of the worst (in terms of BSOD's only).
Bad pool header is usually memory caused by a driver (IE NIS)
while you are waiting you can run memtest to test yours.
Download a copy of Memtest86and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.
Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.
Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.
