I have a G751 coming and I've come across reviews that state GameFirst III not only doesn't help but actually causes problems and therefore should be uninstalled. Just want to check if that is the general consensus among the experts here? Is there any harm in uninstalling it? TIA.

You need to immediately uninstall gamefist 3. It is a program designed to help manage your internet bandwidth to prioritize it for gaming. Great idea poor execution. This program caused horrible download times internet speeds and even made gaming worse. It also caused conflicts with NVidia Gaming Center. I was unable to update or download the gaming center. After I uninstalled it based of information found on online forums everything started working normally.

Basically all reviews I found on internet tell to uninstall it.

I just got my G751JL with Windows 10. I don't see this Gamefirst III program anywhere (nothing under "add or remove programs" in control panel).

Is Gamefirst not installed in the JL model? Or have I not looked for it correctly? TIA

It's there, ROG Gamefirst. If not, then maybe it's not installed. Program is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ROG Game First III

Thanks. I have just looked again: not there in my new Win 10 G751 JL. I saw other folders: Gaming Center, ROG MacroKey, and Live Upate, etc., but not Game First. Mine is the least advanced/expensive of the G751 models and maybe some programs are not installed. I don't see G Sync either (have already done the Bios F9 reset).
