Bsod bad pool header when running opera/firefox
Alright here goes,

Every time I open up opera or Firefox i get a bsod bad pool header crash. This happens either when the browser is loading up or in the next 10 seconds.
The problem started ocurring while I still had Xp installed, I thought format and reinstalling to win 7 would fix the problem...bummer.
I'm attaching the last mini dump.
I've searched the net for an answer and found none((
Seriously I'm about to tear my hair out
ran memtest 11 passes no problems, chkdsk no problems sfc scanow nothing.
Hmm don't know what other info i can provide. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1) Go to start and type device manager.

2) Select device manager from the control panel list.

3) From the device list, see if there’s any exclamation mark or error reported. If so, you can remove the driver related to the device and install a new one.

4) To remove driver, right-click on the device and select “Uninstall.


windows update check for drivers in particular

Does this mean all drivers are up to date or did the scan not work?
