The tool is however widely available on the windows platforms and can also be utilized in checking sound effects and output.



Now another major concern is, Is SS3Svc64.exe a virus?

Dear user friends, please note that the original exe file does not cause any security threat to the system.

However, there are some necessary steps that are to be followed while using this software so that one doesn’t run into the risk of losing important information.

Following this verification procedure is necessary because of several reasons:

  • modern malware is more powerful, and they have camouflaging capabilities.
  • It does not get detected in anti-virus scans when there are risks of security threats.
  • They change themselves to executable files and get overlooked by security detectors.
  • Moreover, these files are often previously installed and hides in a suitable location.

One thing that needs to be kept in mind is that the user will have to check whether the parent application that is Sonic suite three is pre-installed or not. If no, then there is no reason for this .exe software file to cause a threat to any system information.


However, some long-drawn procedures are to be followed to keep a check on your system’s security. This residual file should never be executed without the parent application. When it seems that the problem is unreal, here are steps to lead on:

  • The first step is to check the location of the main process SS3. For this, you’re to press CTRL+SHIFT+Esc keys.
  • This will take you to the task manager.
  • After going to the task manager, you open the parent file from the list
  • Choose SS3Svc64.exe by right-clicking on the option.
  • Open the File tray from the pop-up menu that you get to see over there.

If the file Sonic Suite 3 is not installed in a custom location accessing or processing the legitimate file will not be easy.

The safety threat can be checked by downloading it into a virus database and thus can be run through a number of security scans while it is compared with a dozen of other virus signature databases. Thus, you can determine whether the file is a virus threat or not or whether your system runs the risk of losing any information or not.


The next question that arises is, Should I remove the SS3Svc64.exe startup?

To get rid of this annoying prompt every time here are the steps that you can follow.

  • Go to the .exe file’s main folder location
  • Right-click and select the folder
  • Select properties
  • Select the Compatibility tab
  • Choose the option to change the settings for all users.
