Slow performance and no sound with pulseaudio-equalizer

I installed pulseaudio-equalizer on my laptop, but after 3 days my laptop became slow and there wes no sound at all. It happened because of the pulseaudio-equalizer package. Even if you remove it, the problem won't go because it adds some configuration to the pulseaudio itself and doesn't remove it.
Open pulseaudio configuration file, find pulseaudio-equalizer section and remove it completely:
sudo nano ~/.pulse/
The section should look like this:
### Generated from: pulseaudio-equalizer
load-module module-ladspa-sink sink_name=ladspa_output.mbeq_1197.mbeq master=alsa_output.pci-0000_05_00.0.analog-stereo plugin=mbeq_1197 label=mbeq #control=-0.2,-0.2,-0.2,-0.2,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,2.5,2.5,0.0,0.0
set-default-sink ladspa_output.mbeq_1197.mbeq
set-sink-volume alsa_output.pci-0000_05_00.0.analog-stereo 65536
set-sink-mute alsa_output.pci-0000_05_00.0.analog-stereo 0
### END: Equalized audio configuration
Reboot your computer and enjoy restored performance and sound!
