Windows 7: Bad_Pool_Caller BSOD

02 Feb 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Bad_Pool_Caller BSOD

Just registered; hoping for help.
I'm normally able to maintain my computers and solve problems by myself, but this intermittent (4 times in a month) crash has me stumped. I thought it could be memory related, but memtests seem to confirm that my (Corsair brand) memory chips are fine.

This should be the link to my (4) minidump crash logs:

Advance thanks for any assistance with this perplexing problem. I haven't even installed anything over the last month or so, though obviously things have updated. I've been using Driver Reviver to keep my drivers up to date, but that's literally the only thing that comes to mind that has changed before and after these crashes began to occur.

This should link to the new zip

If it doesn't, let me know... I haven't used skydrive before, though it seems superficially similar to gdocs.

I checked two of your latest crashes, and both of them are indicating to an almost four years old Trend Micro.

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

Old or new, my suggestion to you is to uninstall Trend Micro. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.
There are other good lot of problematic elements present in your system, but as they are apparently not creating any problem, overlooking them for the time being. If you want, I may give you the details. For now, you do the suggested changes and report us back.
