The seemingly innocent lyrics site will infect your computer something fierce...expect toolbars, random sex site popups, fake anti-spyware programs to show up on your PC...

Hey, it wasn't just me. Somehow I wound up there, and my Norton and Microsoft Anti-Spyware went absolutely nuts. Good to know that it was the site, and not something deep inside my computer.

I've noticed that's a problem with a LOT of lyrics sites, especially the ones that appear towards the top of any Google search you do for lyrics.

It's gotten to the point where I try to find a website that doesn't have the word "lyrics" in the URL, or a band's official site. You just can't trust the internet like you used to.

I blame for killing my Compaq. Its been repaired since then, but I've also bought an entirely new computer (so bad was the infection).
