Windows 7: BSOD BAD_POOL_HEADER 0x00000019

BSOD BAD_POOL_HEADER 0x00000019

Hey

So I got my German uncle's laptop, and by default it was in german. I installed Windows live essentials and the English language to change it, it told me to restart and I did. When it opened again the blue screen showed up on the "welcome" screen (which was still in German)
I tried opening in the safe mode and doing a recovery, everything was in German and I was completely lost, my uncle doesn't know anything about computers and he couldn't help me translate. I also tried to uninstall windows live essentials but it only had the option to uninstall a photo program in it, I'm pretty sure it wasn't what I installed.
Anyway even after the recovery I still received the message.

I need urgent help, and please make your answer detailed because this computer is German and I can't understand a word.

I'm sorry I couldn't do the log collector, because the battery died and I am still gonna buy a charger. I need an urgent answer and a solution please.

Hi Caroline33,

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but without any dump we cannot provide proper solutions.
This crash is typically caused by drivers, but the screen doesn't mention a driver.

What you could try as a next step is a clean boot

Did the BSODs just start recently, for no apparent reason? Does he have antivirus installed? If so, which brand?

I ask because I've been seeing a rash of this exact screen in the last two weeks, and it's been traced to certain versions of Avast and/or AVG. (BTW, AVG is now owned by Avast.) Avast is a Czech company, so it seems reasonable to expect it might be a popular choice for a German user.

If he has Avast or AVG installed, go into Safe Mode and uninstall it. Then see if the computer boots properly without it. If it does, install a different AV product, or the latest Avast Free 2017, which doesn't have the problem.

Glad to hear that.

Normally, it would be quite a stretch to jump straight to the av app as your first suspect, but the timing of your post was too coincidental. As near as I can tell, the problem just began about 8-10 days ago, and I've had almost a dozen customers in the past 7 days with this exact problem.

I have several old versions of Avast and was able to replicate the problem on a test machine. While researching the problem I came across a post in some other forum somewhere that seemed to be from an Avast rep, acknowledging the problem. I wouldn't expect them to put out a patch, though, since it only affects some older versions, and Avast can legitimately advise users to just upgrade to the current version. I confirmed with my tests that Avast Free 2017 doesn't have the problem.
