What is Flexible Family?
Flexible Family is a questionable desktop application that promises you “practical advice for your family,” unfortunately, it has proven to be simply a new invention from the same creators who are responsible for a number of identical ad-supported programs, such as SurveyMeta and LeadingVideos. This adware may pose as a multiple threat source for your computer. As a matter of fact, it can bring other malware programs on board, too. Apart from the questionable distribution methods used to spread this application over the web, it may also introduce you to unsafe web content and third-party advertising. Clicking on any content this adware may show you could result in your landing on unsafe websites. According to our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com, the presence of this application is rather undesirable and risky; therefore, you should remove Flexible Family and every other infection related to this adware.

Where does Flexible Family come from?
Research shows that this program, similarly to the other clones, is mainly spread through download offers. These offers may be generated by suspicious websites, browser extensions, or adware infections on your computer. Another way in which this adware may land on your PC is that you click on modified search results. These can be corrupt links or third-party ads as well. This can happen if there is at least one browser hijacker on your computer and you conduct a web search through the search engine it promotes. You should never trust search engines that are not reputable because you may find yourself on a manipulated search results page and you will not be able to tell the difference between legitimate and corrupt content. There is also a slight possibility that you download this adware through freeware bundles, which are mostly hosted on suspicious file-sharing websites. You can see that none of these options are any good as all of them may mean that there are a number of other malware infections on board, too.
What’s equally worse is that even the official installer of this useless program (FlexibleFamily_Setup.exe) contains several infections, including System Healer and Yoursearching.com. You can download this installer from the promotional webpage, flexiblefamily.com; although, we do not advise you to even visit this site. The reason we say so is that anti-malware programs usually flag and block this site as an
HTML/ScrInject.B Trojan is detected. However, if your PC is not protected by a security tool, you may download and install this adware and a bunch of adware apps, browser hijackers as well as potentially unwanted programs that may come with it. In order to understand the current threat situation on your computer, we suggest that you delete Flexible Family and then, perform a full-system malware scan that can help you detect all present dangers. If you leave such issues unaddressed, your operating system may have more serious issues in time.
How does Flexible Family work?
Although this application claims to give you family tips, we have found that it will most likely annoy you with potentially unreliable third-party web content and advertisements. When you launch this application, it will open an Internet Explorer window and load potentially harmful pages, such as freebiesfrenzy.com/lp-d4m. This program also opens its own GUI with a big logo in the top-left corner. Below this logo it loads a specific promoted webpage, bestfamilyadvice.com. However, this application does not function as a browser, so you cannot actually use it. Even if this webpage may be a legitimate one, this adware is no use to you at all. Why not visit this site directly from a browser? Why would you risk being exposed to unreliable advertising through this software? We hope that you make the right decision and realize that it is not in your best interest to end up on malicious websites where you may get scammed or infect your computer with more malware programs. You should not hesitate to delete Flexible Family if you vote for virtual security.
