Well after downgrading from Windows 8, I now have a BAD_POOL_HEADER BSOD coming out of Hibernate... Never happened before upgrading to 8, then downgrading... I've tried 5 different Windows installs, using drivers from the Asus site...

Anyone familiar with the error?

probably you need to reseat your ram. is this happening frequently?

honestly, i forgot when was the last time i saw a bsod (it was many months ago, due to my careless mistake on pagefile settings). there was none ever since i fixed it.

It only happens coming out of Hibernate... I haven't gotten around to messing with the RAM yet... Looking at this dump file... Here's the info... Keep in mind, I've installed Windows 5 times now trying to fix it... But I know it's going to take more than that...

i googled for a while with that error code, most of them had one thing in common: ram test.

After enabling Driver Verifier, it seems to be pbfilter.sys causing the blue screen... PeerBlock... odd that it worked fine before though... I blame Windows 8... for everything that's wrong with world, and also my blue screen...

It's brand new RAM... It was pbfilter.sys causing the issue... I will only run PeerBlock when I need it now...

ah.. it's an incompatibility issue i think. sorry i wrongly assumed that you didn't install anything after the ram upgrade haha

It's cool man... I do wonder why an Asus employee would chime about memory, with by far the worst engrush I've ever seen AFTER I posted the solution...

A bugcheck analysis reported it was most likely a driver issue...


BAD_POOL_HEADER (19)

The pool is already corrupt at the time of the current request. This may or may not be due to the caller. The internal pool links must be walked to figure out a possible cause of the problem, and then special pool applied to the suspect tags or the driver verifier to a suspect driver.

perhaps he didn't notice it. by the way, is this peerblock effective? never used it before.

Well I've never gotten an email from Comcast Security Assurance so I'd like to think it's working... I wouldn't do anything with a torrent without it... I was running it at all times, but it blue screens me out of Hibernate, I'll have to limit it's use to downloading a torrent...

This is just a part of yesterday, while getting a Retail Ultimate 7 .iso

I also use Microsoft Security Essentials, it's very lightweight, and works well... no noticeable footprint... So between the both, I'm pretty protected...

Don't forget while torrenting you're getting incoming requests for sharing said data...and I do hope it's legit :p so all those blockages, are probably people trying to leech the data you've downloaded

I've got this solved... and that's not a solution... if you bought a ferrari thats supposed to go 212, but it only goes 206, I'm sure you'd be mad, regardless of the never having to go that fast...

More like leaving your car in park and it having a chance exploding when you put it in drive :p

Glad to see that you got your issue resolved.

While on the topic of peerblock/peer-guardian :


Besides the original criticism of Version 1 being slow and buggy, most other criticism of PeerGuardian is around the actual technique used to block peers. Critics have pointed out that the blocklists are open to the public, and thus parties who may wish to circumvent PeerGuardian can actively check the list to see if their IP addresses have been blocked.

The blocklists are also managed by the public, but there is no fool-proof method on checking or reporting why an IP address or range are bad, nor on checking if the blocked IP addresses still remain bad. The list relies on the public to make submissions, and thus is vulnerable to attack itself (see above section on blocklist management issues).
