BSoD Bad Pool Caller

  1. I'm currently running the Starcraft 2 Beta and had experienced various freezes so I figured I would update my graphics card drivers. I got the latest drivers but after restart I couldn't resize the screen above 640x480 and 16 colors so I uninstalled the drivers and installed the previous ones again. The next time game I tried crashed midway through and I got the BSoD with the Bad Pool Caller identifier. The details windows gave me after the restart was the following:
    Error signature
    BCCode : c2 BCP1 : 00000007 BCP2 : 00000CD4 BCP3 : 02100001
    BCP4 : 88971790 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 3_0 Product : 256_1

    plus a minidump and a a sysdata.xml file (I've attached both).

    My system specs:
    IntelCore 2 CPU 6400 @2,13Ghz
    2 GB of Ram
    GeForce 8800 GTS
    My old drivers are the 190.62 while the new ones are the 197.45.
    I can provide any other information if needed.

    Your error is 0xC2: BAD_POOL_CALLER
    A kernel-mode process or driver incorrectly attempted to perform memory operations. Typically, a faulty driver or buggy software causes this.

    The driver cited as the cause of your crashes is the nltdi.sys which is part of the NetLimiter software.

    Thanks Route44! I uninstalled it as I haven't been using it anyway. Hopefully that will solve it!
