LyricXeeker

What is LyricXeeker?

LyricXeeker is a potentially unwanted application which can be embedded and installed onto Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers.

The software is distributed through download managers that bundle adware, toolbars and other potentially unwanted software through companies such as ClickRunSoftware (bestcodecpackapp.com, newzipopenerfun.com), ISfreemium, and ISBRInstaller (baixaki.com.br).

Overview

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.
