Bad Pool Caller

Hi!I recently decided to format my computer. It's not the first time that I did it and I never had a problem. I did it with the use of recovery disk it has. It's default operating system was Vista, but I was given win7 to install. I did all the updates and the computer seems to work fine. However if I decide to put it in hibernation, when I log in again I get the blue screen. I think I managed to upload the file to skydrive. Any help would be appreciated. 


The attached DMP file is of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bug check.

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high. The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.

^^ e4usbawx64.sys = ADSL USB Driver is a driver file from company Analog Devices Inc.


1. Remove and replace avast! with Microsoft Security Essentials for temporary troubleshooting purposes as it's very likely causing NETBIOS conflicts:

avast! removal -


2. In general, the ADSL USB device driver is very old (2007). A lot of these older USB-based modem/network drivers have very old device drivers, and they don't cooperate with the OS very well at all. If you crash after #1, you're going to have to purchase a newer USB-based network adapter.
