The installed file AutoLyricsUpdater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.

I don't remember installing this, and have found that it has been injecting its own ads on websites on IE, Chrome and Firefox. Uninstall this if you find it on your system.
