In the "How to Remove" link that tg1911 provided, did you try the "Sony XPC-Aurora Rootkit Removal Patch"?

F-Secure's BlackLight Rootkit Revealer may also be of some use in this situation by using it in conjunction with the set of instructions provided by tg1911. Blacklight Rootkit Detector is avaliable here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/use-blacklight-to-remove-rootkits/
