RealTime Protector detects W32/XCP.A, what should I do?

Note: This information is about CD's containing XCP content protection software developed by the British company First4Internet for Sony BMG.

The warning from the RealTime Protector says:

When you are using a Sony BMG music CD with XCP (Extended Copy Protection) then files and registry keys are installed on your computer and processes are run. The file detected as W32/XCP.A is a part of Sony's XCP copy protection. To fix this problem, you must first uninstall the XCP copy protection software.

Removing the XCP copy protection software:

Sony has released an update that removes the cloaking technology component of XCP. Please go to http://cp.sonybmg.com/xcp/english/updates.html to obtain the update.

The complete uninstallation of the XCP copy protection software can only be done by sending an uninstallation request to Sony through their customer support. Please go to http://cp.sonybmg.com/xcp/english/form14.html for the request form.
