Resolution

The !analyze debug extension displays information about the bug check and can be very helpful in determining the root cause. When possible, the Unicode string of the driver name that attempted to execute non-executable memory is printed on the bug check screen and is also saved in KiBugCheckDriver. Otherwise, the driver in question can often be found by running a stack trace and then reviewing the current instruction pointer.
