A computer that is running Windows XP or Windows Vista becomes unresponsive after the driver load and unload operation is repeated many times

When application repeats the driver load and unload operation many times on a computer that is running Windows XP or Windows Vista, the computer may become unresponsive.

If you use the Memory Pool Monitor (Poolmon.exe) utility to monitor the IoSe and Pp memory tags, the memory that these two tags consume increases as every successful driver load and unload operation occurs.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
