Sony BMG has admitted that instead of the 20 CDs containing the much criticised Sony XPC Root Kit Software there are in fact 50 titles in their catalogue that will muck up your PC.

This week we ask can you drive without shoes? What happens when you Google yourself (and why it's important you should) and how to convert videos to GIFs so you can become the king of the memes.

Sony are recalling all affected CDs and offering customers an exchange when the Root Kit-less versions are released.The Root Kit has already been used by virus writers and removal tools can lock your CD drive. One way around it is to disable “AutoPlay” on your CD player but whatever you do, don’t use the Sony uninstaller as apparently it’s just as bad s the RootKit itself.

The full list of Sony XPC CDs is available here.
