Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:

But did you find anything out of the blue from the zip file I posted??? What was it you were looking for in there? Thanks

So I been running driver verifier since Id say around 1230-1am. So far no issues, No bsod, No nothing. How am I sure this is running? When I goto command prompt and type verifier /query I got a list of stuff. But I dont see any issues I believ.
And what does Load and Unload mean in that prompt? Thanks
