    Random shutdown and typical BAD_POOL_CALLER error on manual SD/restart

    Hey guys, I am a longtime Windows 7 user who updated to 10 a few months ago. Ever since I updated, I get the BAD_POOL_CALLER BSOD after I manually shutdown or restart the computer. Does anyone have any insight into what causes this?
    I also have a very annoying issue, as my computer has begun to randomly shutdown at some point while I am not using it (usually during the wee hours of the morning while I am sleeping). This ruins my ability to use the PC as a media server. As far as I can tell, this began when I either A) began to tell the PC to go to sleep after 20 minutes of non-usage, B) began to overclock my GPU (ASUS GTX970) for gaming, or C) some random hardware failure that has just begun. I never had this issue with Windows 7.
    I also get this warning consistently in Event Viewer: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device ACPI\PNP0A0A\2&daba3ff&0.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi butterblum,

    I recommend to undo any overclocking while troubleshooting.

    Uninstall ASUS software as it is known for causing BSOD's, not saying it is, just minimalizing the possible causes.

    How come no hotfix update is installed?
    Windows 10 should install updates automatically

    Any bypass on your system needs to be removed and related software.
    Troubleshooting a system with counterfeit programs is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
    A counterfeit program contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
    For this reason, analyzing systems with counterfeit programs is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

    When you have removed every bypass and related software, run the DM Log Collector again and upload the new zip, to prevent mistakes with the bypasses.
