Windows 7: What are : dump_iaStorV.sys and dump_dumpfve.sys ?

What are : dump_iaStorV.sys and dump_dumpfve.sys ?

When running DriverView (Nirsoft) I found these drivers to be loaded

C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\dump_dumpfve.sys
C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\dump_iaStorV.sys

These two files are not on my system.

(Only iaStorV.sys is available, I have RAID,0)

I found dump_dumpfve.sys in the registry and deleted that key, rebooted and at least this one doesn't show up.

Could not find dump_iaStorV in the registry.

Q: anyone out there knows how to disable this from being loaded (even though it refers to a file that is not existing)

Thanks

dump_iaStorV.sys is created to allow disk access during crash dump file generation, as is dump_dumpfve.sys. Why would not want them loaded?

Background of my question is that I am seeking the reason why all of a sudden my system may totally freeze and there is no alternative but to reboot. So I went on to check drivers that may be the root of this problem.

These drivers do not have any signatures, descriptions or name of the developer.
They even do not exist on my pc as a matter of fact.

On: Driver Reference Table - dump_iaStorV.sys
it says "Windows Update or 3rd party driver manufacturer, depending on the source driver"

So why having such non-existing (that is to say, not on my pc), unknown, 3rd party drivers loaded?
