Windows 7: BAD_POOL_CALLER BSoD - Would Appreciate Help with Diagnostic

BAD_POOL_CALLER BSoD - Would Appreciate Help with Diagnostic

I was playing Tree of Savior and my PC randomly crashed. When I looked at the file that prompted the BSoD, it said BAD_POOL_CALLER. It's the first time I've seen that so I figured that I better post about it here. If I ever have a blue screen, it's usually due to me having to update my graphics driver but that's a different file altogether. This message kind of raised some red alerts so if anyone can help and pinpoint what driver or whatever else is malfunctioning, I'd appreciate it. The PC was bought in January 2013 by the way in case that's relevant at all.

The dump file is attached. I will continue doing as I do while I wait for a response. If anything changes I'll post or edit the topic.

Avast has caused the crash, however seeing this crash has happened a long time after the last crash I don't think this is something to worry about

Hmm... So just Avast! was the issue? Maybe it's because I've neglected to update its software a bit.

If it's just Avast!, then that's good. If it happens more often then I'll do something about it. By the way, are you sure it's just Avast? How did you find out? I'm really curious on how you guys know these things. I looked at the bugcheck analysis you posted and didn't see anything related to Avast.

Aswmonflt.sys is the Avast! File System Minifilter Driver which has been flagged.
