Sony rootkit wasn't good, but that doesn't mean that every rootkit is automatically evil, almost all Anti-Virus software vendors use rootkit to hide themself from certain virues/trojans. Alcohol and Daemon Tools also use rootkit in a bad way, it screws with your optical drives.
Regarding the SPTD issue with crippling your speed, would MagicISO (Magic-Disc Addon) have the same effect? It doesn't use SPTD, whcih is why im using it with Win7 right now.

PowerISO also doesn't use SPTD but it runs slow as hell for me on Win7.
