Event ID 3032 Win32: 1381

All,

We have a user with the following error "The Logical Disk Manager Service failed while registering for device handle notifications on device \\?\storage#removablemedia#7&274edf85&1&rm#{53f56030d-b6bf-11d-00a0c91efb8b}. Win32 Error 1381."

I've read:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/microsoft-support/windows-xp-support/366193-usb-mass-storage-not-showing-explorer.html

... and verified that the services are set properly ...

http://smallvoid.com/articles/windows-xp/services/

... The one thing I have noted is that most other articles are pointing to it being somekind of malware. I have attached an image directly from the user's computer for review.

Finally, we've had the user uninstall and reinstall his usb controllers (just popping in/out of the Dev Mgr)

Thanks,

Naerwen

Any help is appreciated.

I think you have have a nasty rootkit. Try downloading and running Sophos Free Rootkit software. Must register on the site to download.

In the meantime, look for any files in the c:\windows\system32 folder that begin with ovfs.

flubbster,
     I am suspect of that (more so malware), as well,  based on what I've been reading online. Since this is an agency system, I have to hit the Sec Unit to run the utility on the box. I will get back to you asap with the results.

Flubbster,
You were correct. A nasty rootkit was reported by the Sophos AV console as well as Mal/Dorf-A. The rig has been sent to the Sec Unit for investigation.
Thanks for the direction.
