    I just got this yesterday. They're both from "Direct Revenue". One shows up as "aurareco" and the other is "mupetvxprrz.exe". I used MS Antispyware, Spybot, Pestpatrol, and SuperAntispyware along with Norton Antivirus. Nothing has stopped it from replicating itself if a program removes it. Norton Firewall keeps asking if I want to allow connections. Any way besides reformatting to get rid of it?? If anyone suggests MyPCUninstaller, that sucks too.

    Besides the above, simply typing the name or process name into Google usually will help you find out how to remove it.

    anyone know if "istsvc.exe" is one of those annoying/hard to get rid of virus/spywares?

    i got this and tried several things including Trend Micro online virus scan, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, Security Task Manager. I also tried running in Safe mode and tried these. It replicates itself everytime.

    any suggestions?

    ps: i don't want to reformat.

    To get rid of my spywares, I downloaded the trial version of Solo Antivirus (http://www.srnmicro.com/)...worked great to remove them. Just be careful not to remove something important, like I removed something from Trillian, but it was important, leading to my reinstalling of Trillian. Also, the trial version of Super Adblocker (http://www.superadblocker.com/) worked well too. Microsoft Antispyware identified it & deleted it, but the ones by "Direct Revenue" kept replicating. Norton Antivirus was ok I guess, but used Norton WipeInfo too and that seemed to work well in the end as a final precaution.

    And now you know why they are the subject of a class action suit. I think I counted 8 programs that you mentioned to remove their crap.
