    Sony Rootkit Remover

    Lavasoft - the AdAware people - have released a stand alone tool to remove the F4I copy protection software, that is the illegally installed rootkit which comes as an unannounced add-on with some Sony music Cds. Good for them.

    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?

    Awesome. Glad someone took a stand on this and came out with a removal tool.

    MS actually built it into thier AntiSpyware beta, but this is a standalone tool which will be preferable to most users. Have they all been locked up yet like thew malicious hackers they are - Sony I mean, not MS. On the face of it I can't see any difference between the Sony rootkit and any other Trojan so it must be breaking many computer crime laws and unusually the powers that be know exactly who the culprits are.
