Windows 7: Software and Hardware .sys Database?

Software and Hardware .sys Database?

Does anyone know of a database of listing somewhere to quickly and easily identify the thousand (millions even) Hardware and Software Drivers (Windows System Drivers AND Third Party Software Drivers) out there?
I work in IT support, mostly remote support, but we get a lot of BSOD customers and using Windows Debugger to identify causes of BSOD crashes is super thorough... but I guess I'm just HOPING that maybe someone knows of either a database/list somewhere... or a website with an index of some kind...


If anyone knows a way other than just googling the .sys files from WinDbg and sifting through garbage results for each one... please share.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
