I took a Windows internals & troubleshooting training by Mark Russinovich & David Solomon few years ago and Mark mentioned both procexp/procmon install a kernel driver and yes its done dynamically (that's actually what I meant by "installing" - the loading of the driver). I haven't verified it myself, I think I can believe the word of the author of that tool :)
