Overview

Lyrics-Fan is a software program developed by LyricsFans Engineers. 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 lrcsfans.exe. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 12 files and is usually about 1.1 MB (1,155,401 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 21% of users of Lyrics-Fan come from Japan, it is also popular in Australia and Argentina.
