That is odd. I have Verifier enabled, and it seems to have reduced the resources being used that were causing my system to hang... The system is no longer using most of the RAM to transfer files from a Macrium image. I am still waiting for a crash to occur due to Verifier.
Turns out if I open a command prompt and type verifier /query, it gives me the paged and non-paged usage in bytes. iaStor is using the majority of the memory if this is any indication. It would be nice if the drivers were doing their normal thing so I could be sure. I may try enabling only iaStor in Verifier and seeing if I get a different result.

I use a small program from Nirsoft called Driver View. It lists the start address, end address and size but it's in hex. It shows just about everything you want to know about the drivers that are loaded including where they are (file name).
Download here: DriverView: Loaded Windows Drivers List
The download link is toward the bottom. The first is 32-bit, second is 64-bit and the third is for Win-NT.
There's no install--It's stand-alone. I just create a Desktop shortcut for it.
By the way, they have other pretty slick utilities.
Forgot to mention: You can click on a column to sort the list ascending or descending. Sort the list by size and it will show the "hogs".
I realize now that I asked the wrong question. NoN tried to answer it, and between DavidW7ncus, NoN, and carwiz, I have found the right direction. I may start another thread in the debugging and crashes thread at some point in the future with the correct question. I appreciate all the help.
