I wrote this article to help you remove LearnTheLyrics Virus. This LearnTheLyrics Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

LearnTheLyrics is an application developed by Mindspark Interactive company, that is classified as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program). A sign that this malicious software has invaded your device is the modified browser settings. This parasite replaces your homepage, new tab pages and even search provider, with the LearnTheLyrics.com website. It is not uncommon to notice new toolbars or extensions that didn’t get your permission for installation.

LearnTheLyrics is responsible for the large number of targeted advertisements that you see on your screen. Such ads will make your browsing a living hell. The parasite will stop at nothing to lure you into its net. Even a page that previously did not display any ads, will now be covered with promotions in the form of banners, in-text ads, pop-ups or blinking alert messages. But be careful! Most sponsored links lead to unverified pages that may seek to open backdoors for hackers.

As we already mentioned, this application has an official website and can be downloaded freely from various app stores. However, it can also sneak on your device unnoticed through free software bundles. Often, the reason for this is that the user makes the mistake of opting for a Quick installation, aiming to save time. Sure, it might seem the easiest way to install software on your device, but this will also grant permission for hidden content to get installed along the regular programs, without your knowledge. What we suggest you do instead, is to select a Custom/Advanced type of installation when available. This way, any additional software that was hidden from you will now be visible. Then, all there’s left to be done is to deselect this content and finish the install.

The LearnTheLyrics utility has no place on your computer. Upon discovery, you need to remove it immediately, so it doesn’t get the chance to steal your personal and financial data, or seriously damage your web browsers. This parasite can be very destructive, causing your browser to crash and freeze. Your internet connection will also get affected, leading to its slow speed. The longer you allow this pest to stay on your PC, the worse its effect will get. Your only way out of this mess is the removal of this pesky LearnTheLyrics PUP. If you don’t know how to get rid of the malicious software yourself, we have provided detailed instructions below.
