Flex PC Cleaner

If you believe Flex PC Cleaner to be a useful piece of software, you will be shocked to find out that it is an advertising-supported program that we strongly recommend deleting from your operating system. It is not capable of cleaning your computer or making it run any faster. Unfortunately, that is exactly what it seems to promise at flexpccleaner.com. Of course, if you download this program from this website, you should notice that the download link is called “Download & View Exclusive Offers.” Well, how are exclusive offers going to clean your PC? They are not, and the attractive service is just a bait to attract your attention. As soon as you launch the installer published by MaxSpeedy (Fried Cookie Ltd.), you will face advertising. The installer itself advertises third-party software! Are you interested in the removal of Flex PC Cleaner?

Flex PC Cleaner is very similar to HealthySure, BabyMegs, LucidMovies, and other advertising-supported programs that supposedly provide beneficial services. All of these programs are introduced to users via interactive interfaces that showcase interesting content. The reality is that this content is identical to the content found on quickheal.com. Whether you are introduced to Quick Heal software or other content, it should become obvious that Flex PC Cleaner is NOT beneficial. In fact, it is utterly useless, and that is what’s most surprising. Of course, you are more likely to be baffled by the ads that will keep appearing when you interact with this adware. Every time you click the FlexPC shortcut on the Desktop, you will see an Internet Explorer window popping up with a new offer. You might be shown harmless ads and sites, but you might also be shown misleading surveys and other unpredictable content. If you see different kinds of ads, it is possible that you have let in other of ad-supported programs, such as Search Know. This adware – just like Sweet-page.com hijacker, PUP System Healer, and other undesirable programs – might be installed onto your computer via the official installer.

It was found that Flex PC Cleaner can also be promoted by third-party installers and via modified search results. If you are introduced to this adware via the search results, it is likely that malicious software was already active before the infiltration of this adware. In either case – whether or not you install it from the official website – it acts in the same manner. The main purpose of this program is to showcase third-party content, whether it be ads, surveys, or the contents of some website. Another purpose of this program is to collect information about you and your behavior. As stated in the Privacy Policy that you can review at flexpccleaner.com/privacy.php, even cookies that belong to unfamiliar third parties are employed to track you. The most disconcerting fact is that personally identifiable information is recorded by this adware, and it can be shared with “interested third parties.” If you do not think this is something to worry about, we can assure you that it is.

Do you trust Flex PC Cleaner? Do you think it offers beneficial services? If you do not trust it, and you realize how useless it is, waste no more time and initiate removal. If you uninstall this advertising-supported program, you will need to handle a few leftovers, which is why we suggest using the guide below. This guide shows how to eliminate this adware fully one step at a time. Do not be intimidated by this process because it is fairly straightforward. Of course, it is even better to employ automated malware removal software because it can erase all other threats at the same time. Unfortunately, it is quite likely that other unwanted programs have slithered in along with this ad-supported program. In the best case scenario, these programs will be relatively harmless or simple, and you will be able to eliminate them without any trouble. However, much more malicious threats could be present as well.
