What is Sonic Train?
Sonic Train is truly an awkward name for a program that has nothing to do with traveling. In fact, it is a mere adware-type program that you should remove, because its only objective is to generate revenue for its developers while you get nagged by unasked-for commercial advertisements. This program’s developers utilize dishonest distribution techniques, because no one would intentionally install it. We have a hunch that this program’s advertisements may be untrustworthy as its developers do not disclose information regarding the third parties who make use of the developers’ advertising services. There is not much information regarding this program and we will try to do our best to provide you with as much of it as possible. Please continue reading to learn more.
How does Sonic Train work?
Let us begin with the most relevant issues regarding Sonic Train. It is important to understand that apart from displaying commercial advertisements, this program does have any other functions. It was developed specifically to show ads in order for its developers to make money. It is also important to understand that well-established legitimate businesses do not use adware as a means to promote their products or services. Only shady businesses are happy to make use of adware to promote some kind of a website, software, services, etc. It is likely that Sonic Train will promote other adware programs as adware business has grown into a tightly-knit community so to speak.
As far as more technical aspects of Sonic Train go, it is installed as a program, but it will also inject your web browser with an extension in order to display the ads. However, uninstalling Sonic Train via Control Panel will also eliminate the extension. In any case, after your computer has become infected with this adware, it will automatically start showing advertisements that should come as various pop-ups, coupons, banners, etc. The ads might appear quite frequently which can hinder your browsing experience. More importantly, Sonic Train has been programmed to collect anonymous information about your browsing habits in order to tailor the ads and in turn generate more revenue.
Where does Sonic Train come from?
Finding the company that made an adware program is very difficult if the developers do not provide this information themselves. According to this program’s website at Sonictrain.net, Sonic Train is a company itself, but no information about it could be found. We think that this company is fake. What is more is that we know Sonic Train to be based on the Injekt engine developed by Injekt LLC. This company is a known adware developer that has a very poor reputation. It is also know that it bundles its programs with other software which is then hosted on websites that distribute them as freeware.
