Windows 7: BSOD: BAD_POOL_CALLER and others

19 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7

I'm having an issue with one of the computers at my work, and I'm not sure what to do. For about a week the computer was basically unusable. It would boot up, work for a couple of minutes and then go to a BSOD. I decided to take it to look at it more completely. I've run both MemTest and a CHKDSK on it, and neither found anything.
It seems to be working fine now, but I would like someone's thoughts in case I can prevent it from happening again.


The specs for this computer are:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Pentium Dual Core E5400 2.7 GHz
Motherboard: eMachines MECP73VT-PM

Anything else, please let me know.

These were related to your ESET. 12 of 16 point directly to it. I would remove and replace it at least to test. If you need to re-install it after the fact please make sure your have the most current version (version 5.0) as yours is dated 2010.

Thanks. It seems to be fixed. I updated ESET and everything seems to be fine. Haven't had any issues since the update.
