Windows 7: BSOD while idling or playing Dota 2 - BAD_POOL_CALLER

BSOD while idling or playing Dota 2 - BAD_POOL_CALLER

I returned from a 3 day trip to my parents' house today, and I naturally just made a beeline for the computer once I entered my home.

I log in, put on some music (through YouTube, I know, I'm a disgrace) and head for the shower. Halfway my cleaning-up process I notice the music stopping, and after I finish I see that the pc is back at the log-in screen.

"Weird", I think to myself, "I remember no such behaviour when I left my dear computer". So I log back in again.

Fast forward 20 minutes, and while I'm just talking to some friends on skype, I receive a BSoD, the second one in hindsight. BAD_POOL_CALLER haunts the upper parts of the wretched, luminous blue screen. I restart, worried, that it must be my sound cards. I've been having a bit of trouble with the external and internal one conflicting, one I solved by just disabling the internal one. I recheck that it's disabled through the device manager, just for good measure, and I find it normally not-active.

Alas, the bemusements of the internet make quick work of my worries and it's not long until I'm invited into a Dota 2 game by one of my friends.
Though my entertainment is to be cut short. 20 minutes into the game, the screen freezes for a couple of second and I receive a BSoD, with the BAD_POOL_CALLER error code.

I re-start. I re-join the game, to not ruin the experience for anyone else. 20 minutes in, I receive the same BSoD. I manage to finish the game and here I am, asking you gentlemen for help.

Could anyone be of assistance, if I provide thee with these .dmp files? I'm sure we can track down the process that caused the conflict and error.

Related to your ESET. Yours is over 2 years old. I would remove eset at least to test and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials just for the time being.

Love to but there is no "text" file. You need special software (called winDbg) to examine the contents.

I shall get winDbg, then.

Just for your information, I left the computer on under load (F@H) all night, after uninstalling ESET as per your advice. No Blue Screens. Will still tread cautiously for another day or so, then mark this as resolved.

Thanks

Good news. Regarding win DBg you will also need a set of symbols for each OS you want to do work on and they take up about 1 gig each.

>1gb for a set of symbols

Dear god, what?

Anyway, marking as resolved, no weird behaviour as of yet~
Hey, do you honestly believe I should stick with MSE or should I seek out other antivirus protection?
