Cause

This driver failed to cancel lookaside lists, DPCs, worker threads, or other such items before unload. Subsequently, the system attempted to access the driver's former location at a raised IRQL.

Resolution

To begin debugging, use a kernel debugger to get a stack trace. If the driver that caused the error has been identified, activate Driver Verifier and attempt to replicate this bug.

For full details on Driver Verifier, see the Windows Driver Kit.
