The entire experience was frustrating and irritating. Not only had Sony put software on my system that uses techniques commonly used by malware to mask its presence, the software is poorly written and provides no means for uninstall. Worse, most users that stumble across the cloaked files with a RKR scan will cripple their computer if they attempt the obvious step of deleting the cloaked files.
If you find this rootkit from your system, we recommend you don't remove it with our products. As this DRM system is implemented as a filter driver for the CD drive, just blindly removing it might result in an inaccessible CD drive letter. Instead, we recommend you contact Sony BMG directly via this web form and ask for directions on how to remove the software from your system. We've test driven this and they will provide you with tools to do this. However, they will install additional ActiveX components to your system while they are doing this so be adviced.
While I believe in the media industry’s right to use copy protection mechanisms to prevent illegal copying, I don’t think that we’ve found the right balance of fair use and copy protection, yet. This is a clear case of Sony taking DRM too far.
The fate of all mankind, I see
Is in the hands of fools

Trojan Horse Hides Using Sony Rootkit

What security experts have warned about Sony's DRM has come to pass, with a new trojan horse attempting to hide itself using techniques enabled by the company's anti-piracy software. Dubbed "Troj/Stinx-E" by Sophos, the application copies itself to a file called: $sys$drv.exe, which is hidden by Sony's copy protection.
