The bad pool header error can be caused by:
undervoltage (bad power supply),
a driver conflict (try turning off the USB printer during a backup),
hardware device not working (network card, video card)
bad memory: RAM nodules and perhaps the hibernation or virtual memory files (hiberfil.sys or pagefile.sys) [also NTFS problem (corruption)],
bad sectors on the hard drive
a corrupt registry entry or
a filesystem problem,
a old or bad driver. etc.
First disconnect any external devices connected to the computer except the mouse and keyboard, check what happens.
To simple determination of faulty RAM, try running with minimum amount of RAM sticks.
This error can have two causes:
The first one is the Indexing service.
Click Start, then Run and type msconfig. In the Services tab, uncheck Indexing Service. Confirm and restart Windows
The second one is a file or folder is damaged.
Open Windows Explorer. Then click on each folder and subfolder. If the error occurs again, you know that the file is damaged that you just activated.
Reboot Windows and delete the folder.
