Recently, my Windows crashes often crashes with the error message "bad_pool_header" or sometimes "windows was shut down to protect your files". I have tried un-installing some programs and recent Windows updates but that did not help.

The Indexing Service seems to be one of the most common causes for this problem.

Click on Start>Run and type Services.msc then hit Ok.

Scroll down and find the service called:

Indexing Service.

When you find it, double-click on it.

In the next window that opens, click the Stop button.

Then change the Startup Type to Disabled.

Now press Apply and then Ok and close any open windows,then reboot.

Ok.. i tried out the method you prescribed but the crash problem was not fixed. However, the "bad_pool_header" error message now turns to "Windows was shut down to protect your computer" ... wired, really.

Okay... i found out a new problem... the Indexing Service was turned off... thats okay.
Now the Crash message turns out to be something like: Windows was shutdown to protect your computer Crash Message:"blah blah_the attempt was read only memory". I was playing a game at that time, and it was a ROM (Read-Only-Memory).
Also, even when i was only typing a Microsoft Word document, the crash just comes suddenly.
Please help me stabilise the stupid system of Windows SP2.Thank you.

How much ram have you got installed,how many sticks.
Try turning off your pc and remove them all but one,does that make any difference.
Run Memtest86+: http://www.memtest.org/
Then remove the present stick of ram,replace it with another,run Memtest on that.
Have you recently installed any new hardware or software just prior to this problem starting.
Make sure all drivers are up to date ie:video,sound,network cards etc

I tried out all methods prescribed, but no luck. But now there's a slight chnage in error message.

PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

STOP: 0x0000004E (0x0000008F, 0x00002E92, 0x00003442, 0x00000000)

when I restarted my computer, a BAD_POOL_HEADER crash followed after the system BIOS was run(computer crashed immidiately when Windows Log On screen was to be loaded)
