Lyrics Finder

What is Lyrics Finder?

The adware web browser extension is typically bundled with third party download installers such as Conduit's installer and downloads the file during the offer stage from http://cdninst.com/offers/AddLyrics/.

The LyricsFinder Software integrates into the user's web browser by installing a BHO in Internet Explorer, an extension in Chrome and a plugin in Firefox. It also includes an update service (LyricsFinderUpdater.exe) that runs periodically to check for new updates and download additional code. In addition it has been seen adding new adware to the user's PC.

In Windows Vista and higher it adds the registry key CURRENT_USER\Software\AppDataLow\Software\LyricsFinder and in Windows XP it ads the key CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\LyricsFinder.
