Windows 7: Random BSODs, SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION

Random BSODs, SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION

Brief history of my problems: Apparently random crashes, but not necessarily BSODs, have been going for over a year. I changed some settings a couple of months ago so I can read the message and it puts things in the minidump. Most commonly the crashes occur when compiling something in visual studio, but crashes also occur randomly when just using the desktop.

Yesterday I got a BSOD 0x00000101 "Clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor", which I tried to fix through every troubleshooting post I could find (memtest, prime95, driver verifier, etc) with no errors. Today I decided to update my BIOS to see if this would fix the problems. I used Gigabyte's @BIOS internet updater, and presumably just as it was about to start actually doing the update (a couple of progress bars had already completed), my computer bluescreened with the error in the title.

After that, I used the debug tool linked here. Hope someone can help!

(yes, my computer's name is "AWESOME")

I have "EnergySaver2" in a gigabyte folder. I'll get rid of that.

IMHO, you should do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 .... following all the steps applicable for you.

And you should not install any of the Gigabyte utilities at all. They all are bad things.

I don't remember ever installing any of the gigabyte utilities. I've certainly never used them. I tried to uninstall all the gigabyte utilities that I have, but I get the BSOD when I try to uninstall the timelock utility, even when it's not running, and I can't run the timelock program either (it complains that I don't have a gigabyte motherboard when I do). I've tried running as admin.
