Windows 7: BSOD Bad spool header?

28 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD Bad pool header?

This problem just started the past few days and has been really annoying. It BSOD randomly when I'm using my laptop.
I have defragged, ran a full AV check (KIS 11), reinstalled and updated drivers. I hope its not a hardware problem the one thing I suspect would be the graphics card as its been displaying fuzzy every so often.

Is Windows 7
. . .

- x64 Ultimate
- the original installed OS on the system? Vista
- Full Retail

- What is the age of system (hardware)? 1 year
- What is the age of OS installation? Half a year

Thanks for the solutions if you have any!

To rename drivers, use Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System 32\Drivers, locate the driver and rename it from .sys to .bak.

How to find drivers -
- I have listed links to most of the drivers in the code box above. Please use the links there to see what info I've found about those drivers.
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

its been displaying fuzzy every so often.
This suggest overheating

Kaspersky IS caused the BSOD, This was a known bug in the older version which was caused by kl.sys. Update to I had the same issue and I fixed it by doing a repair install of Kaspersky

That's weird KIS is causing the problem because I had the 2010 version the whole time and this problem never occurred until the last few days. I thought it too might be my AV and yesterday I put on KIS 2011, but the BSOD still occurs. I will uninstall KIS now and put MSE to see if it fixes it. Thanks
