A couple days ago my computer just started randomly freezing out of nowhere (the taskbar wont work, all you can do is move the mouse around, ctrl-alt-del wont work)
This doesn't seem to happen as often when I'm not connected to the internet. I even got a bsod once that said something about a driver.
I searched for viruses and malware and found nothing wrong. I found a faulty ethernet driver in the device manager and disabled it. That didn't work so I got a working driver, but still nothing. I also reinstalled the driver for my modem.
I even tried a system restore. I have no clue what else to do.

While posting this on the forums, I got a bsod saying BAD_POOL_CALLER, another sign of a bad driver, but this bsod was different than the last one.
