Windows 7: BSOD When Shutting Down, BAD_POOL_HEADER

BSOD When Shutting Down, BAD_POOL_HEADER

This Is So Strange. No BSOD Happened To Me Before.
This Is My First BSOD

I Was In My PC. I Shutdown The PC Before Sleep.
And Guess What? It Appeared When The PC Shutdown.
I Know My Family Had A BSOD Once With This PC.
Found Out That Time HDD Was Corrupt.

And This Time ( I Used NirSoft´s Blue Screen View ) I Used sfc /scannow
And It Found Some Corrupt Files. But It Must Be Driver Issues. Hers The BSOD Display:

Caused By Driver: ntoskrnl.exe

Strangely I Shutdown The PC, RIGHT After Avast! Free Anti-Virus Was Installed.
Im Gonna Later Edit This Post To See The sfc /scannow log.

EDIT: Past Time My Family Had A BSOD, I Ran a chkdsk check.
It Was Taking Too Long . So I Forced Shutdown.
I Reinstalled Windows 7 After That. I Formatted My Partitons, Deleted Them.
And Created New. Don´t Know If This Time Its HDD Corruption.

ANOTHER EDIT: Windows 7 Acess Denies Me When I Try To View Dump Files
Or CBS Logs. And I Am An Adminstrator. I Only Managed To View DMP Via Blue Screen View.
I Cannot Also View The sfc /scannow log.

Note: Before The BSOD Happened, I Installed Avast! Free Anti-Virus And Shutdown The PC.
But Before Any BSOD Happened, In My Windows 7 Home Premium x86 ( I Maked The Move To x64 Now. ),
I Installed Avast! Free Anti-Virus And No BSOD Or Error Happened.

The pool is already corrupt at the time of the current request.
This may or may not be due to the caller.
The internal pool links must be walked to figure out a possible cause of
the problem, and then special pool applied to the suspect tags or the driver
verifier to a suspect driver.

Sorry For Like, 5 Days After You Posts, I Reinstalled Windows 7 From My Disk, And, Arc, When It BSOD´d On Me It Did Have The Exact Version Of The Atheros Driver, Because When I Reinstall Windows ( It Happens, Like, 2 Times A Month ) I Only Update NVIDIA Drivers, Nothing More, My PC Is Fine Now, But I Do Not Think The Wireless Driver Caused It.
Please Post For Why´d It Happen So I Later Can Avoid Getting A BSOD.

Troubleshooting is based on facts, on on thinking. If you want to pay importance to thinking over fact, it is your choice. :)
