    The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) did not load: dam

    So I frequently get the event viewer message
    "The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) did not load: dam"
    Well, DAM I say!
    What is dam, and does anyone care?
    By the way, in other Windows, I like to keep my desktop quiet and calm. I don't recall knowing how to do that in 10, but maybe I made it too quiet some months back?
    What do you think?
