Let’s not mince any words! VSCodec Pro is a malicious application, and one should be aware of all its properties, and how to deal with it, should VSCodec Pro be present in a computer system.
VSCodec Pro, also referred to as: VS Codec Pr or VSCodecPro, is a fake video codec, which is advertised as a new software application, which claims to be able to optimize “the quality of audio and video files, up to 60%” (www.VSCodec-Pro.com)... for only $49.99-$79.99.
Important to note here – this claim is false – and VSCodec Pro will certainly NOT be able to optimize your video and audio files, as VSCodec Pro is solely designed to degrade and compromise the integrity of a computer system it has infiltrated.
Based on the above, one can safely assume that VSCodec Pro is a form of rogue anti-spyware software, as it tends to display the following properties:
• VSCodec PRO is installed without your permission.
So how would VSCodec Pro enter into a computer system?
VSCodec Pro enters into a computer system with the assistance of a Trojan infection. Usually a system will be infiltrated by a Trojan infection, via a security exploit. Once embedded within the system, the Trojan affiliated with VSCodec Pro will display numerous pop-up messages, in fact – these messages will bombard the user, until the user complies with the prompts.
The fake error message the Trojan infection displays reads as follows:
As soon as the user adheres to these prompts, the user’s browser will be redirected to VSCodec Pro website: VSCodec-Pro.com/purchase.html, where further tactics are deployed as a means to ensure the user departs with their hard earned cash.
The following are symptoms one should look out for - as it may be an indication of the presence of VSCodec Pro:
• Slow computer performance:
• New desktop shortcuts or switched homepage:
• Annoying pop-up messages:
The Manual removal process is as follows:
• Step 1: Kill the VSCodec Pro Processes
• Step 2: Remove VSCodec Pro files, folders and all associated VSCodec Pro DLL files:
• Step 3: Uninstall VSCodec Pro registry entries:
Manual removal is great, but should best be left to the individual that knows their way around a computer and its registry files.
So as not to further damage your system, and to avoid unnecessary risk to the system, one should definitely employ the services of a legitimate and fully functional, up-to-date Anti-spyware application, to rid the infected system of all traces of VSCodec PRO.
