So I recently installed ABC as my bittorent client. Randomly and only when this was running I would get this BSOD error that said Bad Pool Caller. I then switched to uTorrent. Once again I randomly get this error and have to restart. But today I got a new error: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I have no idea what any of these could be but I am fairly sure this is caused by my bittorent client (99%). I have never had this problem before I got them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Frankie.

Hi Maabsta,

Browse thru This thread in TechSpot.
It points to a sound card or driver issue.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Bad pool caller is likely a driver issue as TMack said. But driver issue might well be due to RAM problems. Run memory test overnight.
It's still freeware, you can get ISO image here for the bootdisk needed for the test
and here navigate to technical information about the ten tests
