Nothing. All I do know is it's blocking my ability to download Adobe Flashplayer which I need to have!

it is blockingmy abilityto download adobe flashplayer
It highly infects your Adobe Flash Player's capability and festers further, creating multiple problems with other dowloads and PC Speed. Your PC is immediately infected when you Install and/or run the FreeRide Games Player. It is able to be deleted by slowly and painstakingly carefully going through your PC's Registry Editor by deleting each individual Game and/or .exe application name (most of which are listed above). This process took me over FOUR HOURS to slowly and completely remove all remnants from my PC's Registry Editor

It is interfering in my being able to download the newest version of flash player which I need for several things I do on here.
  Connie Cooper  
it stops my computer from functioning correctly by not allowing programs i desperately need, like flash plaer, to open.
  Janice Vinson

associated with flash ie freeridegames
This is used with Free Ride Games (amongst others), and not essential to pc functioning. Can disable via task manager for adobe downloads. Easily uninstalled.

it will not ley me download adobe flash player
uses a fair bit of memory even when no freeride games have been played since last restart. Seems to cause performance problem is running concurrently with flash.
I've repeatedly been blocked from downloading the latest flash player, which i really need. Sorry I ever put it on, although I enjoyed the games, youtube and videos are more important. Down with FreeRide games - its too invasive!

nothing but I am NOT uninstalling my free ride games player just so I can download adobe flash which I need. I am frustrated and want to run this flash program but donot want to lose my games so I suggest fix this error properly instead of sluffing it off to the user to fix....
Not needed. It installs when you install the FreeRide games player, and it slows your PC down. Avoid. Don't try to uninstall the Freeride games player via the Windows uninstaller, you wont get rid of all of it. Research google first.

It has a lot of information that I think is unnecessary. Also, the ads are annoying; particularly when it makes the screen look smaller, making it harder to see clearly the graphics in its games.

Best practices for resolving GPlayer issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with GPlayer. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
