Removing SecuROM from your system

I am anti-“copy protection” and it pisses me off that these big corporations can leave crap (such as the SecuROM rootkit) on your computer after you’ve uninstalled the game, and yet since its big corporations (such as Sony, which developed SecuROM) nobody seems to care that it can hurt your computer. (I’ve seen cases of it disabling CD burners, not letting you open the task manager, forbidding access to the legal games you bought, and even making the operating system unusable.)

However, you can get rid of SecuROM by following these instructions. Read them very carefully, and only attempt if you know a fair bit about computers.

Good luck!
