What is BestLyrics?

BestLyrics is an adware program that integrates into the user's web browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox) and will perform a number of functions mostly designed to generate advertising supported or affiliate revenue. In order to do so the program will display a number of different ad formats by injecting the ads directly in the user's browser based on either the activity of the user's past and present behavior or based on the context of the web page. Ads are displayed as banners, text-links, search related adverts or in many cases malvertising in order to get a user to download and install additional software, mostly bundled adware. This adware will also track and report back the user's surfing behavior including web pages and domains visited as well as the advertisements displayed and clicked.

Additionally this program may modify/hijack the web browser's homepage and search provider as well as change a number of the security settings of the browser. These changes will allow it to perform additional ad-supported functions in the browser. Typically it comes bundled with free applications from the Internet through a bundles offer for free software including video utilities or for updates.


During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named Blyr.exe. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 4 files and is usually about 1.14 MB (1,190,283 bytes).
