Windows 7: BSOD, Bad pool caller, windows 7.

25 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
BSOD, Bad pool caller, windows 7.

Hey everybody!

I have been getting BSOD's since yesterday with the Bad Pool Caller error message.
It seems to happen when I download, but I might be imagining things.
At first it happened when using Megaupload download manager, but it just happened again while downloading normally through Google chrome and after uninstalling said download manager.

I have also tried running the PC on the original 1 GB of Ram by removing the additional one installed on the netbook. Without success, obviously.

I am using a MSi wind u100 netbook, windows 7 home premium 32 bit.

Since I really have no clue on how to use or interpret these error dumps, I hope that somebody can have a look and hopefully tell me what is going wrong.

Many thanks in advance! :)
