Uninstall Space Sound Pro “Virus”

I wrote this article to help you remove Space Sound Pro. This Space Sound Pro removal guide is working for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Space Sound Pro is a HiFi emulator, developed for desktop computers. The utility is compatible with the Windows OS, versions 7 and 8. Space Sound Pro has a free trial period of 30 days. The program’s licensed copy costs $9,90 USD. The trial version is available for download from spacesoundpro.com. There is a link on the homepage. We do not advise using Space Sound Pro. The tool has a rather poor security reputation. Space Sound Pro carries out tasks on the background without getting the required authorization. For this reason, the shady program has been categorized as adware.

How can Space Sound Pro be dangerous for your security?

The target area of Space Sound Pro are the computer’s headphones and speakers. The tool’s purpose is to enhance the sound quality. The adware displays messages about system components and processes which it is not authorized to monitor. Space Sound Pro will prompt you to update the codecs, drivers and media players you use. The clandestine program does not have access to the system’s internals. It cannot obtain information about the availability of software updates. This proves that the notifications it displays are fake. Accepting to perform an update could result in installing a virus to your machine.

Space Sound Pro does not limit the messages to updates for sound processing components and media players. The adware shows updates for other programs which concern different processes. The furtive tool can even show you security alerts. Of course, the only software you should trust for messages like this are your system’s Firewall and the anti-virus utilities you have installed by yourself. Disregard all other alerts.

Like classic adware tools, Space Sound Pro also promotes shopping deals. The insidious program will show you bargain offers for various consumer goods, including clothes, technological devices, sports gear, furniture, decorations, gardening equipment, accessories and others. Space Sound Pro processes ads in various shapes and forms, including pop-ups, pop-unders, in-text links, coupon boxes, freebies, inline, floating, transitional, contextual, interstitial, comparison and full-page ads. They could redirect you to dangerous websites. We urge you to avoid them.

There is a task which Space Sound Pro conducts on the background. The covert program tracks users’ browsing sessions and collects information on them. This includes their browsing history, keystrokes, IP address, geographic location, demographic profile, email, telephone number, physical address, user names, passwords and the input they have entered into their personal accounts. The people behind the adware can sell the data they have gathered on you without getting your consent. The individuals who acquire your personal input can use it as they see fit. The developers of Space Sound Pro, a company from Kowloon, Hong Kong called Asia Soft Interactive Advertising Ltd., have conveniently issued a disclaimer of liability to avoid being held responsible for security issues.

Can Space Sound Pro get installed to my computer without my knowledge?

If you do not recall deciding to try out Space Sound Pro, you may be asking that question. There are a couple of ways for the adware to access your system without your knowledge. The shady tool travels with freeware, shareware and pirated programs. You should avoid software, published by undisclosed entities. To be on the safe side, read the terms and conditions of the programs you add to your system. A tool like Space Sound Pro would be included as a bonus application.

The other way for the adware to gain entry into your computer is through a spam email. Space Sound Pro would hide behind an attached file, listed as an important document of some kind. The sender can tell you that the attachment is a letter from a reputable entity. Spammers often misrepresent legitimate entities like the national post, courier firms, financial institutions, government branches, e-commerce platforms, the police department and others. To proof the reliability of your emails, check the contact information the senders have provided.
