Have you downloaded LyricsBuddy and now wish you have never done it? Computer users wish to remove this browser plugin because it often comes bundled with advertisement supported programs which may track your virtual activity and flood you with different online advertisements. What is more, the services of the application have been proven to be quite useless. Whilst the add-on presents lyrics to the most popular, most viewed music videos it is highly unlikely that you will be serviced appropriately when viewing less popular ones. This is one of the most important reasons why you may want to delete LyricsBuddy from the operating system.
Have you paid attention to the way lyricsbuddy.co is presented? This download page looks identical to the ones representing LyricsPal, LyricsWoofer, LyricsSing and other browser plugins. As you can guess these are the plugins which provide the same services as LyricsBuddy. Even though some of these applications cannot be downloaded from their official sites due to the broken download links, it is clear that all of them have been developed by the same people. If you download any of these plugins onto your Internet Explorer you will discover that the publisher is not verified. If you check the ‘Add or Remove Programs’ or ‘Uninstall a Program’ utilities within the computer you should discover that they are presented by Lyrics. This is why some security researchers put all of these infections in the Lyrics family category.
The risks related to the plugin may wary from system to system. In case you have acquired the program by accident when installing bundled software the risks are higher because more dangerous and mischievous applications could have been dropped onto the PC. On the other hand, even if you have downloaded LyricsBuddy from its official website it does not mean that unreliable, clandestine programs could not have been dropped onto the system.
In order to ensure that malware is not running on the PC you should utilize a reliable scanner and then ensure that automatic malware detection and removal software is activated at all times. Of course, you can also follow the manual LyricsBuddy removal instructions below; however, if you choose to perform this operation you simply must scan the PC for potentially existing threats afterwards.
