Firstly, apologies if this is an issue that's been dealt with elsewhere (if so, I'd appreciate a pointer - I couldn't find anything dealing with this specific problem through a keyword search).

I'm running Windows XP Home with SP2 (which I installed some time ago, and didn't cause any problems that I noticed).

But recently, my computer turned itself off - and every time I turn it on, straight after startup I get a BSOD with the following details:

BAD_POOL_HEADER

STOP: 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0xFEC94518, 0xFEC94620, 0x0A210001)

The system seems to run fine in safe mode, but I haven't been able to use any debugging programs, etc, 'cause I didn't have them installed before the crash, and I can't figure out how I can do install them within safe mode, which is the only way the system will run.

The only thing I've changed on the system recently is that I installed an update of MSN Live Messenger - but I've disabled automatic startup which hasn't made any difference; and I haven't been able to reinstall it b/c, again, I can't/don't know how to install/uninstall programs in safe mode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, do you have any recently added hardware or updated drivers? If so, try and disable or remove the hardware and try again. If its a driver update that you recently did, try and rollback the driver if you can.
