Windows 7: BSOD: "BAD_POOL_CALLER" after exiting game(s)

BSOD: "BAD_POOL_CALLER" after exiting game(s)

I ran into this problem just yesterday night when I was playing Crysis, I got the BSOD after I quit the game, and it happened again today. I never got a BSOD when using Windows regularly. I ran a memory diagnostic, and didn't have any problems with my memory, so I'm thinking it may be a graphics card issue, anyway check it out:

All my drivers are up to date too...if that helps.

My video driver is already up to date (10.11), as well as DirectX and I'm still getting the same problem.
