No need for rootkit either:


"'Crash into me...' If you buy the new Dave Matthews Band Stand Up CD, do not
put it in your Windows computer. I did and it popped up an annoying software
installation and I said no to it just like I did 9 years ago when I first
saw that happen with Fiona Apple?s Tidal. It then ejected the CD. First
strike! I just wanted to listen to it. So I did the logical thing and pushed
the CD drive back in, and the CD spun up and then the computer crashed and
rebooted. Needless to say, this is a very bad thing."
