Hi and thanks for the update seemingly removing the HDD software was the solution
as two days of normal usage with Verifier enabled didn't yield a crash
You can disable verifier now, Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
As for your question.
IRP logging and Force Pending I/O are "not suitable"
for what we are doing and because it forces
drivers to behave in such a way they weren't developed or intended for.
IRP Logging, takes a great toll on the system and doesn't help us as we are dealing with post-mortem
dump files. IRP logging is a very useful option during a live debug that involves attaching
the said sick machine
to an external PC.
Force pending I/O is as I briefly mentioned earlier, "because it forces
drivers to behave in such a way they weren't developed or intended for."
Which most often than not will flag false positives.
drivers are usually the the drivers related to ACPI and the crash dump itself.One example is dump_iaStor.sys
ACPI = Advanced Configuration and Power Interface.
The Macrovision driver is secdrv.SYS
, present in all Windows installations (I believe since Windows XP).
I'm not exactly what it's job is but I think it handles privileges and similar security concerns in Windows.
I hope this helps
