You should be able to remove 'addlyrics' in the Add or Remove Programs in W8.1 settings.

Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and press C. Click the Settings icon, then Control Panel, then click Uninstall a Program.
you can also get to the Control Panel by simply right-clicking at the bottom left corner - it's in the menu that pops up

Hi I have tried this and there is nothing in add or remove program of that name.
Download, install and update Malwarebytes free version, deselect any other options to install toolbars etc.

Run the scan and follow the prompts to remove any nasties. Sometimes it works better in you run the scan whilst your laptop is in 'safe mode'
