One of my 2008 R2 enterprise 64 bit server got rebooted unexpeditely. after debugging i came to know that csrss.exe did that and csrss.exe was hit one of driver. So i ran driver verifier (verifier.exe) to verify all drivers installed on that server.

Now i have result in front of me and status showing as loaded in front of maximum drivers and unloaded in front of few one. what does that mean and how can i which driver was verified and which one is not..
