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. 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 main program executable is lrcspal.dll. A vast majority of those who have this installed end up removing it just after a couple weeks. The software installer includes 3 files. XingHaoUpdater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.

It's adware/spyware - a variant of the "Text Enhance" group of viruses (causing random underlined words which display ads when rolled over with the mouse cursor). Definitely remove it. It can be seen in: Start >>> Control Panel >>> Programs & Features, or in your browser add-ons list. Also, if you see a file named "Bundled Software Uninstaller", remove that too. It can be removed manually without having to download any "removal" software.
