Windows 7: Does running Verifier put any kind of load on the system?

Verifier has run for 24 hours, of course no crashes or freezes. I do have two questions though -

1-Does Verifier in anyway, guard against a driver crash? In other words aside from capturing the name of the offending driver, does it add a layer of stability?

2-Now that it hasn't crashed within a 24hour period with Verifier running, does that mean I can rule out a driver issue?

Thank you for your help!

TT

It doesn't make it stable it just tells you what driver is faulty.

Second question answer. If you didn't get any BSODs while performing regular PC usage Id aim at the hardware . Run a hard drive fitness test and a memory test.

If you have any dmp files please upload them. Use the Tool to grab everything needed. Use the GRAB ALL button.

When the system freezes it seems odd because it appears the usb is resetting. Description - the screen is locked, mouse / kbd won't do anything, but I see my printer display lights up like when the system first boots. So now I changed the usb to not allow windows to put them to sleep. I have a good psu, and the voltages on the usb's look fine. I do have a number devices though, including 2 drives, a midi controller, printer, media player charger, and a usb audio interface. The audio interface is powered via a wall wart but the interface is usb.

If it crashes I will post all the files. The weird thing is I had/have all the correct boxes checked in the event of a crash / bsod but the last few times neither a full dmp or mini was produced. I went in the other day and just made sure all my ticks were correct and now waiting for the next time to see what happens.

I did disable DV after 24 hours. So far system is running fine. If it does start in again I will enable DV again in since my crashes when they do happen come in a series.
