Windows 7: Laptop crashes (shows blue screen) whenever I start a blocked website

Win 7 64bit
Laptop crashes (shows blue screen) whenever I start a blocked website


Just installed Hotspot Shield (latest version 2.74, also tried 2.65) and its install was successful but after it's turned on (green icon shows) then I start a blocked website like YouTube, or on Firefox, my laptop crashes and shows blue screen, shows something like: XX00000789, 0000089998 kind of messages and BAD_POOL_CALLER message on the top left of the blue screen... And the file name ndis.sys always shows on bottom left of the blue screen.

I realized that the messages on the BAD_POOL_CALLER area are random, sometimes it shows DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and sometimes it shows BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER... Anyone know what's happening here?

My laptop's specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit: Service Pack 1. 2nd Gen. i3, 3Gb Ram...
