More rootkit nonsense

Symantec, makers of Norton Anti-Virus, have been caught using rootkit like features in it's Norton SystemWorks software much like the Sony DRM Rootkit fiasco that happened last year. Once again poorly written software running on a poorly written operating system will open you up to all kinds of problems. In Symantec's defense, they did release a patch that removes those features when the rootkit was revealed. But still, I can't help wondering why they did it in the first place...

Have you all stopped using Windows yet?
