A few months ago I was infected with a Google hijack, (that seemed to bring along it's friends in the spyware community.) I think I'm clean now but my monthly spyware scans just picked up "Unclassified.Oreans32". I scanned with Malwarebytes and found nothing and scanned with spywareinfo and found Oreans32. I also have Kaspersky running all the time and it hasn't found anything so I THINK I'm clean...

Spywareinfo's "Explain Detected Item..." button told me that Oreans32 is sometimes legitimate and sometimes part of spyware, but didn't tell me what legitimate programs use it. I'm guessing it's part of the DRM on one of the games I have installed, (whoever came up with DRM should be shot BTW...) but I'd like to know for sure. How can I find out what is using c:\windows\system32\drivers\Oreans32.sys?
