BAD_POOL-HEADER Blue Screen.. Only once though

So I got the BSOD, and it said something about this file calle, "BAD_POOL_HEADER". I just restarted and it's fine. Why did this happen though? I literally re-installed my OS an hour ago.

Looks like a corrupted installation of Malwarebytes. Uninstall it, then reboot and perform a Windows Update first - you still have several hundred updates to install. Once fully updated, try and reinstall Malwarebytes.

Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply. May I ask how you know that it's Malware Bytes that is corrupted?

mwac.sys is a Malwarebytes system file.
