Help! My computer will shut itself down all the time, saying there is a Bad_Pool_Header Error. I do not know what drives are conflicting and do not just want to go uninstalling drivers at random.

I have never figured out why it is doing it...but most recently:
I tried to move documents from the desktop to other folders on my computer. My computer showed the error twice after attempting to move two separate folders from the desktop into other folders in "My Documents" (either by My Ducuments icon on desktop or by toolbar I created that has certain my Documents folders on it)

Is this possibly because of the Logitech mouse that I have installed on my computer?

I notice that I have like 5 different administrator accounts...(this is has something to do with the time I tried to change my name on the computer)...could this be the cause?

Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Look for any "!" or "X" symbols. Post back what you find.

You could also try reinstalling the software that came with the mouse.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
