Starting and Pausing a Filter Module
NDIS pauses a filter module to stop data flow that could interfere with Plug and Play operations, for example, adding or removing a filter module in a driver stack, or to add a new binding. For more information about how to modify a running driver stack, see Modifying a Running Driver Stack.
NDIS starts a filter module from the Paused state. The filter module enters the Paused state after the attach operation is complete or after a pause operation is complete.
