Windows 7: BSOD Bad Pool Caller

BSOD Bad Pool Caller

Hello all,

Recently built a computer. I was just watching a video and I got my first ever BSOD with the error 'Bad Pool Caller'. I've rebooted OK however it would appear the computer is notably slower at the moment. I've googled around and I can see theres various causes for this error so any help would be appreciated on the matter.

Obviously this has only happened once but its an issue I would like to address to set my mind at rest. I've uploaded a dmp file for the crash and it has been attached.

As I said previously, any help much appreciated!

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to learn you are having a problem. I could not get a complete analyis; the symbols would not load. Either your dump file is corrupt or you are running SP1 Beta for which there are currently no symbols.

Stop error code C2, BAD_POOL_CALLER - usual causes are device driver, ?memory.

Code:
Kernel base = 0x82a50000 PsLoadedModuleList = 0x82b98810

---------
This is a hardware/hardware related error. To begin troubleshooting -

1. Uninstall Eset NOD32 using this removal tool: Info > Tool. Third party antivirus and firewall software are known to cause BSOD on some, not all, Win 7 systems. Eset is no exception. Download and install MSE and make sure Windows Firewall is turned on. After you get your system stable, you can try NOD 32 again; but I do not recommend doing so. There are valid reasons for this.

2. I suggest you uninstall CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is almost guaranteed to cause BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads. Be sure to select Uninstall; do not select Reinstall.

After you uninstall Eset and get rid of the SPTD.sys driver, reboot and run your system. Let's see how it does. If you have another BSOD, upload it and we will go from there.

I recently installed daemon tools, I've just removed it.

Thanks once more for the assistance, if the problem persists I'll post again.

Very good. Did you uninstall Eset? Be sure to post back and update us.

There are CD virtualization programs that do not use the sptd driver; you can try Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview
