Do you realize you have driver verifier running?

It may in itself be the cause.

Related to gdrv.sys Microsoft Register Server.

I would run a sfc just to check the OS

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

It may need to be run up to three times before sucessful

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.
