iaStor.sys: The process Intel Application Accelerator driver or Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver or Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver - ia or Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver - x or Intel AHCI Controller belongs to the software Intel Integrated RAID or Intel AHCI Controller or Intel RAID Controller or Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver or iaStor by Intel Corporation (Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Server and Embedded Processor Technology - Intel).
Description: File iaStor.sys is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers.
Update your storage controller drivers from Intel's Web site for your chipset. What I believe is happening is there is an event occuring within the hardware that the driver does not know what to do with, thus is hangs or stops responding. After X seconds, Windows stops trying to get the driver to start up again. Since this is a non-vital component, Windows itself will not crash but the software requiring this driver's interaction to function will.
Care to fill us on on your computer's make/model so we can assist you?
