    BSoD on Start-Up and Google Chrome?

    Bare with me if my description on this isn't great, but this problem has recently just happened.

    Basically, I'm getting BSoD's when I'm sometimes booting up my computer, using Google Chrome (it's happened a couple of times there), and so far...that's it as far as I know. The error code says "Bad_Pool_Header" and from a quick Google search, it seems that many have this problem.
    I already ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and according to that, all my memory is fine. I also went through my Device Manager and clicked on each one individually and checked it for updates on their drivers (some needed to be updated, some didn't). The problem happened before this and after as well.

    If anyone can help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Just let me know what I can do to help you. Thanks!

    Re-posting with the attached DM Log Collector.

    In the process of trying to do this, it BSoD on me multiple times to get to this point too.

    Bumping this thread as I see everyone else is getting help, and my thread is being overlooked. Just getting a little frustrating now. Did I provide the right information? Was it descriptive enough?

    I suspect the reason you were skipped is because you replied to your own post. When looking for work here, I and others look for threads with 0 responses to look at first.

    Not sure what you did but what you uploaded is not the full output of dm_log_collector. Please just run it as directed and upload the resulting zip file. There are several files missing from what you uploaded that I want to see.

    My apologies Ztruker, at the time of this issue, I was getting really frustrated as every time I was logged on, I couldn't do anything. Hopefully you, and whoever else reads this bumped post, understands. To provide an update, after this post, I ended up resorting back to Windows 7 for a month and didn't have any issues. However, I just switched back to Windows 10 a few days ago and haven't had any issues until today, where I tried downloading an NVIDIA update and ran into the BsOD "Pool Header" problem again, just like when I made this thread.

    That all said, I believe I ran the test the right way this time and have uploaded it with this post. Hopefully this helps.

    Why did you update the Nvidia driver? Were you having problems? If not, roll the driver back in Device Manager, see if that resolves the problem.

    Meanwhile I'll look at your dump(s).

    Yes, I was. Forgot to jot down what it said, though. I kept getting notifications that I have to update the drivers, also can never update the latest one that came out as well. It would act like it would update, then never would. Now every time I search up NVIDIA, I get an Control Panel Application 8.1.1020.0 error code.

    Both dumps indicate a problem with mwac.sys.

    Driver Description: Malwarebytes Web Access Control
    If it's blamed in a BSOD, it may be due to an outdated version of BitDefender 2016. Ensure that BitDefender is updated to the latest version. Fix came out around 02 July 2016. Otherwise uninstall MBAM and test, see if that helps.

    Not a likely cause of a problem, more likely your NIC driver (Lan or WiFi).

    You say there's an outdated version of BitDefender, but I don't have BitDefender on my computer. Are you recommending I should remove Malwarebytes completely since it causes BSoD's and download that in it's place?

    Read it again. It says "it may be due to an outdated version of BitDefender 2016". Since you don't have BitDefender it can't be, so go ahead and remove MBAM for now. What version do you have. You should be running which is the current version available. If not, go ahead and install the latest version then test.
