What is Oreans?

The genuine Oreans.sys file is a software component of XPROTECTOR (Xtreme Protector) by Oreans Technologies.
“Orean.sys” is a driver file in Windows operating systems for XProtector (a.k.a. Xtreme-Protector), which is part of Themida® software by Oreans Technologies. It runs as a hidden system service and as a non-plug-and-play device driver. It creates registry entries that are not modifiable. In summary, the file activates hidden driver operations to protect programs from getting decompiled or reverse engineered. Vendors insert the software containing this file into their programs/shareware to protect and preserve essential functionality. The file is used in applications like Oxygen Phone Manager II and games like Mount & Blade and Prey. It is very common in shareware software. Oreans Technologies is a global provider of software protection and security services, such as XBundler®, WinLicense®, Themida®, and much more.

If you've installed the game "Prey", then it's a legit copyright protection file. If not, you may have a trojan, as there is a file with the same name as part of a trojan package-can't remember the name of it offhand...bitrose or something like that-but I've run across it a couple times in my travels as a tech support agent.
More than likely it's part of some sort of protection scheme from some shareware application who have installed.

Best practices for resolving Oreans issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Oreans. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the Oreans.sys process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
