I get the BSoD when using Windows Home Server to backup my IBM ThinkPad T42. The same also occurs whenever a virus-scan commences - using the Avira (free) a/v software.

OK, one down, one to follow. Several people complained that Avira v10 gives the Bad Pool Header blue screen, and have reverted to Avira v9. I simply uninstalled Avira altogether, and now Avast is doing fine :)

However, the WHS backup - Bad Pool Header - error pesists...

One possibility is a problem with the keyboard, I can only suggest at the moment to insure that all the drivers are up to date. Which no doubt they are.
There is masses of info out there, but as with all these obscure and quite frankly ridiculous error codes/messages it is difficult to pinpoint the cause.
Most of the time the advice we get when faced with a BSOD is its a memory issue,the ram seems to get the blame most of the time.

I'm assuming you have run chkdsk and sfc/scannow.
