Blue Screen errors in Windows 8.1

Starting yesterday I starting getting periodic Blue Screen errors. They have all occurred when I was browsing the internet. The first three said "BAD_POOL_CALLER" and the one that occurred today said "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". After the first set occurred, I went through and tried to update all of the drivers. One driver for my Realtek card reader was out of date and it would not download a new driver (it kept freezing). I found the driver online and manually installed it. The next day I received the latter message. I do not know if the two are relate or if the second one is as a result of me manually downloading the new driver. Any help would be really appreciated. Its finals week and I need my computer to not crash in the middle of an exam.

My model is HP 2000-2b89WM.

It runs Windows 8.1
the minidump files are here:



We have two bug checks:


This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

A driver tried to access an address that is pageable (or that is completely invalid) while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers that have used improper addresses.

Ralink RT2860 series Wireless LAN Card (you may have a different manufacturer) driver call, as well as various other network related routines. With this said, something 3rd-party is likely causing NETBIOS conflicts.


This indicates that the current thread is making a bad pool request.

Teefer.sys appears to be the culprit driver which is a Norton driver.


Remove and replace Norton with Windows 8's built-in Windows Defender for temporary troubleshooting purposes as it's causing NETBIOS conflicts:
