BSOD bad pool header

I just recently updated to windows 7 and I have only gotten this BSOD once but I am unsure why I got it and any help will be appreciated. This error happened while I was opening league of legends. Please let me know if I need to include anything else.

Attached is the minidump and a screen of the error windows gave me.

This may be a bug from a March version of an Avast driver that you have. It looks to be making an illegal API call. See if there isn't an update you can install for it.

Typically, if a solitary BSOD or unusual symptom occurs, it's best to leave it be unless it repeats. Such hiccups can occur at times, and it's only with repeat offenses should one be concerned. Either way, go ahead and update Avast and be vigilant.

BAD_POOL_HEADER (19)
The pool is already corrupt at the time of the current request.
This may or may not be due to the caller.
The internal pool links must be walked to figure out a possible cause of
the problem, and then special pool applied to the suspect tags or the driver
verifier to a suspect driver.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000003, the pool freelist is corrupt.
Arg2: fffffa8003961770, the pool entry being checked.
Arg3: 6946657461657243, the read back flink freelist value (should be the same as 2).
Arg4: 775a071b006e6f69, the read back blink freelist value (should be the same as 2).

I may be reading this wrong, so take this analysis with a grain of salt. Best thing to do is to have client use Driver Verifier if the issue repeats.

Btw, when looking at the values given by Arg3 and Arg4 of the bugcheck:

No words I can think of, maybe foreign language? Anyways, they do appear to be parts of a character string (at least the first one does). I can't figure if it's code.

To use DV properly, you'll want to consult the article here. For the checks to run, select all except Low Resource Sim, Force Pending I/O Requests, and IRP Logging. Restart after everything is finished. Keep DV 'running' until you get a crash or two. You can turn it off in Safe Mode if you get a reboot loop after turning it on. Again, provide us the crashdumps.
