Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right forumn or tool to use for helping, but every once in a while since I have made a few computer tweaks I get an error message with a blue background screen saying I have a "BAD_POOL_HEADER." Despite this, I have not noticed any actually problems when using my computer. What does this mean, how can I fix it, and does it need to be fixed? :thumbsup: Thanks for all the help.

BAD_POOL_CALLER

A kernal-mode process or driver attempted to perform an illegal memory allocation. The problem can often be traced to a bug in a driver or software. It is also occasionally caused by a failure in a hardware device. You can find detailed debugging instructions for this error in knowledge base article 265879 "How to Debug 'Stop 0xC2' or Stop 0x000000c2' Error Messages. :thumbsup:

Well... I found the address of the article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314492/EN-US/ but I'm having trouble understanding the instructions. Does it want me to run Debug.exe or some other debugging program? I read the link about kernal dumps but I don't understand it. Thanks for any help.
