FlashGamesRockstar is a potentially unwanted program that might put your computer’s safety at risk. Although, it advertises itself as a provider of free flash games, beside those it might also pose some potential threats. Since it is an ad-supported program, you may be disturbed by lots of third-party pop-up advertisements, which can be rather distracting while playing games or surfing the web. FlashGamesRockstar might also come with other infections, which might raise the system’s level of vulnerability. Due to the possibility that this program might harm your computer, we do not think that it is worth keeping it. Please read our full report to understand better why we recommend that you remove FlashGamesRockstar from your system and how you can do it.
FlashGamesRockstar was created by APPsolute Technology, and it is a new clone of Rockstar Games Arcade. FlashGamesRockstar may enter your system in a free software bundle. In this case, there is a chance that you do not even know how it has been installed. The biggest problem with these software packages is that you might be exposed to several malware infections that could be part of the bundle. Third-party installers may include adware, browser hijackers, and other infections, so if you are not cautious during the installation process, you might endanger your system’s security. FlashGamesRockstar is known to come together with PathMaxx, Super Optimizer, and NavRight. These are all advertising-supported programs, which means that you will be bombarded with all kinds of annoying pop-up ads, unless you delete all of them from your system.
You can also download FlashGamesRockstar directly from its website, flashgamesrockstar.com. But before you do so, it is advisable to read the EULA, because you need to understand all the potential threats to your privacy and your system, which are disclosed in this document. Please read this short extract to have an idea what you accept when installing FlashGamesRockstar, and what you might face if it is already installed:
When a program has authority to do something on your system “without user intervention”, you practically leave the control of your computer in the hands of the creators of FlashGamesRockstar and any related third-parties. The EULA also says that the program can remove/add entries to your OS and change your network settings, and the list goes on. Even if these are simply possibilities, our research team recommends that you remove FlashGamesRockstar to be on the safe side.
So, if you finally decide that you do not want to keep FlashGamesRockstar, you can simply uninstall the application via Control Panel. We have prepared a manual guide that can help you with this. But if you would rather have it done automatically, we recommend that you install a reliable antimalware tool, which will also protect your system from any possible attack.
