    BSOD running microsoft programmes such as wordpad, paint..

    I don't know what is causing this problem. Every time I start wordpad it gives me a BSOD "Bad_Pool_Header" and pc resets. If I am in movie maker or MS Paint everything works fine until I insert a text box and it crashes... so I guess it must be something related with fonts??.. However, I have no problems with Microsoft Office programs.
    I attacht some mini dumpfiles I collected after the resets.

    Edited with correct files.

    New info: It crashes the same way, when I try to open the fonts folder: c:..../windows/Fonts.

    So something may be corrupted there. How can I deal with this?? Please help

    I solved it LOL!!!

    It was definetely smth wrong with Fonts. I went to c:/.../windows/system32 and deleted Fntcache.dat and restarted computer so the font cache rebuilt. NO MORE PROBLEMS.

Where's Wordpad on Consumer Preview?
:cry: Good evening. I can't find Wordpad anywhere on this OS . Looked everywhere. Not in Apps. I'm actually upset. This is very hard to believe. Had a hard day and, now this ? Un-real. Just isn't happening. Totally imaginary. I guess that I should've seen this one coming. Goodday.
