Windows 7: BSOD Bad_Pool_Header on an Asus X54HR

BSOD Bad_Pool_Header on an Asus X54HR


It is the second time that I experience a BSOD in my laptop, although I only noticed the mention to "BAD_POOL_HEADER" this last time.

My PC's specs are these:
. Radeon HD 7470M 1GB
. Intel Core i3
. Windows 7 Home Premium x64
. Legal antivirus Bitdefender 2012
. 4 GB of RAM

I don't know which other specs are needed. I'll attach the files created by SF Diag.

Thank you very much


I don't know if it is relevant, but I'm pretty sure that my external HDD was plugged to the PC both times, and that I had utorrent on.

DAEMON Tools Lite is known to crash fact go to start orb type msconfig in the search hit enter, go to start up tab and un-check everything apart from your anti virus, at least while testing.

I'm sorry, but I can't see how that helps. Also I use my computer a lot, and the problem happens in such a rare frequency... Isn't there any way to solve this without diminishing my user experience that much?

As for daemon tools, consider it uninstalled. Is there any alternative that doesn't affect the PC?

Yesterday, I had one more BSoD. This had a Driver related code. I was using utorrent to handle a large amount of files, so I guess that could have something to do with the problems.

I'll upload the new minidump

Thank you
