Sometimes I have processes which I can't kill. Process Explorer, Task Manager and others say that "Access denied". I was told that this can be because kernel driver has a bug or something.

How to know THE NAME of this kernel module or driver?

is this a recent problem? have you updated drivers recently or installed new hardware? – Lorenzo Von Matterhorn Apr 19 '13 at 23:45

Actually not. This question seeks to know the name of the process, not to kill it. – davidgo Apr 20 '13 at 7:36
