Those who have GamesFlight software installed on their computers know how irritating the application might be. In fact, it was categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because of its unwanted behavior. It appears to be that the application can auto-start with Windows even if you do not wish to launch it. Also, it displays numerous advertisements that might redirect you to potentially harmful third-party websites. If you had enough of these ads already, you could eliminate the PUP with our recommended removal steps placed below the text. Deleting the application might wait until you read the article, as it is equally important to learn how such applications spread and how to avoid them in the future.
Even though some users might have downloaded GamesFlight from its official site, our researchers think that the PUP should be spread through bundled installers, too. Some file-sharing sites offer their visitors bundled installers that can install more than one application. Therefore, if launched, such installer could have additional recommended software. For example, it could offer you adware, PUPs, browser hijackers, suspicious toolbars, and other untrustworthy programs. Needless to say that you should be extra careful the next time you decide to download software from suspicious web pages. Actually, it would be better to look for more trustworthy sources, e.g. sites that have good user reviews, official web pages, and so on.
GamesFlight is very similar to such programs as GamerHippo, JungleGamer, Royal Raid, and many others. Their primary goal is to convince you that by downloading their software you will receive premium content, e.g. selected or high-quality games. Unfortunately, the content you get might be not much different from the games that are suggested free of charge on the same website. The situation with GamesFlight is quite the same, so you may want to consider if the premium games are worth putting your computer at risk.
Furthermore, another reason we do not trust the application is because its End User License Agreement claims that “the software may automatically download new enhancements, upgrades and updates.” Untrustworthy programs, such as GamesFlight should not have the rights to download and install any application without your consent. There is a chance that it could install more PUPs, adware or other potentially harmful software. Thus, it might be better to remove the program before it gets the chance to download anything without your knowledge.
If you choose to erase the PUP, you should know that it can be done in two different ways. Firstly, the application can be uninstalled with the Control Panel feature. All you have to do is access the mentioned tool and find the software that needs to be removed. If you need some guidance, you should take a look at the instructions below. Simply, follow the steps that fit your Windows operating system. The other removal option includes a security tool that should be installed on your computer. Once you launch the antimalware; you can perform a system scan and locate the PUP with an automatic feature. Then click the button that will appear after the scanning process and you will get rid of GamesFlight.
