BAD_POOL_HEADER At it again.


Recommended Posts

Okay, so I was browsing around Google and found a thread from last year that explains how Malwarebytes' Malicious Website Protection was causing a BSOD "BAD_POOL_HEADER" connected to the network drivers. Well, after installing Windows 10, I am getting the same error. I have tested (To the best of my ability) and it is definitely Malwarebytes causing the issue (I just assume that it is the Malicious Website Protection though, because I just exited Malwarebytes when I tested a few times, I tested by opening up my Bittorrent client and downloading a few ISO files, whenever I do this Malwarebytes usually gives me warnings about malicious connections and such, but that doesn't happen, I just get a BSOD). Before you ask, I have fully updated my network drivers, and everything is up to date. My guess is that this could be some sort of Windows 10 incompatibility, I am blaming Malwarebytes though, because it does not happen unless I have Malwarebytes open. I would love some help, anything is appreciated. If I'm not the only one, PLEASE TELL ME!!!

Hello and :welcome: :
 
BSOD can be caused by hardware problems, driver issues or even malware (e.g. rootkits).
It's unlikely that any forum thread from last year, under a different version of Windows and a long-since outdated version of MBAM would actually be "the same" as what you are reporting now under Win10 and MBAM 2.1.8.1057.
It does not seem to be a common problem, at least here in the forum.
 
We have a special forum area reserved for BSOD work.
 
Until @AdvancedSetup arrives to move your thread over there, let's get some very basic system diagnostic information for starters.

Please read the following and attach to your next reply the 3 requested logs - Diagnostic Logs (the 3 logs are: FRST.txt, Addition.txt and CheckResults.txt)

 

Thanks,

 

 

(P.S. Additional information most likely will be needed, as explained in this forum sticky -- so you might want to have a look at that, while you wait for a reply here. You need not post those other logs and files here, just yet.)

Hi:

 

Please read the following and attach to your next reply here in this thread the 3 requested logs - Diagnostic Logs (the 3 logs are: FRST.txt, Addition.txt and CheckResults.txt)

 

Depending on what the logs show, the forum staff will either move this thread to a different forum area, as needed, or ask that you start a new, separate thread in another area.

 

Sorry for the confusion.

 

Thanks again,

The logs are showing that it did in fact crash with a BSOD and created a dump file.

 

I would recommend you post in the following forum and they should be able to help find out what caused it.

You could try uninstall your Avast antivirus and go back to the built-in antivirus and uninstall or fully disable your Qbit Torrent program and see if that helps resolve the issue.
