hi folks!
i have the following problem. my virus-scanners keeps popping up with some virus under rdriv.sys . i have read many threats regarding to this topic, but it seems the means to delete it is different every time. i have followed all the instructions given except that i have not installed service pack 1a. at first, it took me forever to find the german version and then i found out that even the "express" version of it is eventually over 50mb large. so what i did is i ordered the free cd with service pack 2 on it from microsoft germany, and that is due to arrive in about 30 days. if i am, with your guys' help, able to delete the malware, i will simply not go onto the internet with my laptop here and instead use my pc. i just thought i oughto say this since you guys say its pointless to fix it without that patch. it would just take me forever to download.
so, here is my hijack this log after running spybot s&d, trojan hunter, avast antivirus, cleanup, just plain everything you guys listed:

Hi there matscher1987 and welcome to G2G :)

I am UKBiker and I will be helping you with this log :tazz:

This is a fairly complex fix, so please print these instructions to ensure all are followed.


Please download the following programs, but do not run them yet:

* rdrivRem.zip
  • Unzip it to your desktop.
* Ewido Security Suite
  • Install ewido security suite
  • Launch ewido, there should be a big E icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The program will prompt you to update click the OK button
  • The program will now go to the main screen
  • You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Click on Start
  • The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed
  • After the updates are installed exit Ewido.
* CleanUp!
  • Install it.
* Killbox by Option^Explicit
  • Save it to your desktop.
Copy and paste the file paths below into Notepad. Save it as malfiles.txt on your desktop.You will use this file in Step 5


Next, Copy everything inside the quote box below and paste it into Notepad. Go up to File > Save As, then click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files". Save it as delserv.bat on your desktop. Do not run it yet, you will need this in Step 6

@echo off
sc stop "AOL Instant Messanger"
sc delete "AOL Instant Messanger"

Next , While TeaTimer is an excellent tool for the prevention of spyware, it can sometimes prevent HijackThis from fixing certain things.
Please disable TeaTimer for now until you are clean. TeaTimer can be re-activated once your HijackThis log is clean.
  • Open Spybot Search & Destroy.
  • In the Mode menu click "Advanced mode" if not already selected.
  • Choose "Yes" at the Warning prompt.
  • Expand the "Tools" menu.
  • Click "Resident".
  • Uncheck the "Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of overall system settings) active." box.
  • In the File menu click "Exit" to exit Spybot Search & Destroy.
Reboot your computer into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight "Safe Mode" then hit enter.


1.) Please double-click rdrivRem.bat to run the program - follow the instructions on the screen. After it's complete, rdriv.txt will be created in the rdrivRem folder.

2.) Double-click the Ewido Security Suite icon to run the program.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan
  • Let the program scan the machine
While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean the first infected file it finds. Choose "remove", then put a check next to "Perform action on all infections" in the left corner of the box so you don't have to sit and watch Ewido the whole time. Click OK.

Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report
  • Save the report to your desktop
  • Exit Ewido
3.) Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
Set the program up as follows:
Click "Options..."
Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
Put a check next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
  • Empty Recycle Bins
  • Delete Cookies
  • Delete Prefetch files
  • Cleanup! All Users
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program.

4.) After Cleanup! is finished, run HijackThis. Place a check next to the following items, if found,:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RNBvnc Test] deadv32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [RNBvnc Test] deadv32.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [RNBvnc Test] deadv32.exe
O23 - Service: AOL Instant Messanger (AIM) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\aim.exe

then click FIX CHECKED. Close HiJackThis.

5.) Run Killbox.exe.

* Select "Delete on Reboot".

* Open malfiles.txt you saved earlier. Press CTRL + A to select all file paths in the notepad, then press CTRL + C which will copy all of them to the clipboard.

* Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".

* Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "OK" at any "PendingRenameOperation" prompt. If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.

After computer has restarted continue with the rest of the instructions:

6.)Double-click delserv.bat that you created earlier on your desktop.

7.) Make sure your firewall is on. Make sure you can turn it off then turn it back on and that nothing is greyed out.
Also, Make sure your Anti-Virus program is working properly - you can turn on and off auto-protect, etc.

8.) Run BOTH of these online virus scans (NOT at the same time!):
TrendMicro's HouseCall - check "Auto Clean"

Save the results from ActiveScan.

I need you to post the contents of rdriv.txt, the log from Ewido, the log from ActiveScan, and a new HiJackThis log into this topic in your next post.

Good Luck
