BSOD - Bad Pool Header - ntoskrnl.exe (Recently deleted slui.exe)

I recently deleted slui.exe following a (bad) tutorial.
Since then I've been experiencing BSOD (every 2-3 hours).

Here's what I've done so far:

-x4 passes with Memtest86, displaying 0 errors.
-x1 chckdsk /f /r, no issue.
-x1 sfc /scannow, fixed some files but BSOD are still regular.

Windbg Crash Dump analysis mentions ntoskrnl.exe several times:

Of course I'm not 100% sure that deleting slui.exe was the culprit, but it kinda feels like it, timing-wise.

Any tips on what to try next? This is the computer I work on and the constant BSOD are really annoying...

    Because you check the RAM and hard drive, they are fine. Next to try;
    1) sometime the antivirus will cause that problem, try disable it to see you get the same error or not.
    2) Try to use the OS disc to repair the system. How to: http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-repair-windows-7-system-installation-disc.htm
