Bioshock PC doesn't install a rootkit.

"2K Games recently issued at statement addressing the DRM protection and widescreen problems for the BioShock PC game. In the statement 2K reveals a change in number of activations available with each copy of BioShock. Consumers are now allowed to activate their copy of BioShock a total of five times via the SecuROM network. Problems have already surfaced on the third-party severs preventing users from activating their copy of the game.

tho im still a little sore i had to pay $10 over the PC version for the same damned game, im glad with the 360 version i dont have to worry about this DRM sh!t. sounds pretty damned bogus to me that they pulled this move, id be pissed if i had the PC version, tho good to see that no rootkit gets installed. also, i'd bet hackers are going to be trying to crack the DRM even more now with the attention this issue has been getting. go haxoRz!

This kind of protection 2K put only bothers people that buy the game.
Soon anyone will be able to download and play, this protection is useless
