Bad Pool Caller caused by mbamservice


Recommended Posts

Hi, I keep getting Bad Pool Caller error. I started a thread over at tomshardware and requested someone to have a look at my dump files and they have told me the issue is with Malwarebytes. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-3066619/bad-pool-caller-error.html#18005662

I still want to keep both programs but have currently only uninstalled Anti-Exploit as I feel less comfortable in uninstalling MBAM.

I have attached the dump files in a zip.

Could anyone please help me resolve this issue and advice me on what to do with both MBAM and MBAE.

Thank you.

I can't look at the dump files right now as I am on my phone.

Do you happen to have Bitdefender installed on your PC?

Yes I do. I am running Bitdefender Total Security 2016. What would be the issue? I have seen threads in this forum relating to Bitdefender but didn't quite understand them.

The crashes are caused by a confliction with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Bitdefender. The problem has nothing to do with Anti-Exploit and it seems that the problem mostly occurs when browsing the internet.

Bitdefender and Malwarebytes are working on a permanent solution. Meanwhile, a temporary fix is done by turning off the block port scans option in Bitdefenders firewall. You can do this by opening Bitdefender's main interface and navigating to: Modules>Firewall - in there you should see the 'Block port scans' option. Turn it off. 

This is just a temporary fix and I recommened that you turn it back on once the crashing issue is officially resolved by Bitdefender/Malwarebytes.

Hope this helps,

Oh right. I have added the.exe from Malwarebytes into exclusion anyways as they are trusted.

I have also now turned off the "Block port scans in the network" option in the firewall module.

Thank you very much for the help. However when would I know when the crashing issue is resolved so I can turn it back on?:P

I would keep an eye out for an update from either program and read the update changelog.

It shouldn't be too long until it is resolved.
