Windows 7: Which drivers are using RAM, and how much are they using?

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

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.
Could be not only IaStor.sys...There's two others processes for Intel: IAStorIcon.exe & IAStorDataMgrSvc.exe that are running

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".
Thinking this over, I think carwiz answered the question I posed for the thread with the software download through that link. I will mark this as solved.

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.
