Bad_Pool_Caller BSOD appears when opening Chrome OR any other app

Im really clueless on what happened. I opened my laptop and then opened Chrome as usual and then a Blue Screen Appeared.

Im Running on Windows 7. Im attaching the dump files.

**UPDATE: any other app i open results in a BSOD, ALSO reinstalling chrome does not help.

Im not very tech savvy.

Hmm, the dump file seems partially corrupt. Anyway, first of all I would highly recommend turning on Driver Verifier by following these instructions.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Where John says to enable all drivers except for Microsoft Cooperation you should also avoid enabling drivers that are 'Unknown' or from 'Macrovision'.

When your PC BSODs upload the dump file by following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Right, your realtek wifi adapter is causing problems. Please update it from this link.

The current thread is making a bad pool request.  Typically this is at a bad IRQL level or double freeing the same allocation, etc.
Arg1: 00000007, Attempt to free pool which was already freed
Arg2: 00001097, (reserved)
Arg3: 9376ec24, Memory contents of the pool block
Arg4: 9376ec04, Address of the block of pool being deallocated
