GOM Player is one of the most popular media player that ranks slightly behind the most downloaded VLC media player in CNET’s Download.com. Normally when a person experience problems using VLC media player, GOM Player is an excellent alternative because the built-in codecs can also play many different video or audio formats and even play broken or incomplete media files. Most importantly, GOM Player is a free to use but it comes with advertisement embedded into the program.
If you have been using GOM Player long enough and keep up with their updates, you may have experienced different ways of advertisements being served to you from the program. Back in 2012 when GOM Player was still in version 2.1.39, an annoying pop up advertisement window will be periodically displayed right after closing the program with an optional setting to not show any more ads for the day.

The popup ad window has been removed in the newer versions probably due to complaints as it is too obtrusive which may drive their users away to use another media player. Now the only advertisement you’ll find in GOM Player is in the video screen itself when no video is being played which does not really affect the user’s experience.If you would still like to disable or remove the advertisement in GOM Player, here we show you 3 different ways on how to easily do it.
This first method is the easiest way to disable the ads that are shown in GOM Player when there is no playback without having to manually change any options on the program. All you need to do is download the .reg file from the link below and run it to merge it with your Windows registry.
Basically this .reg file changes a value in the Windows registry to directly modify the default logo shown in GOM Player which overrides the advertisement.
Download .Reg File to Disable Ads in Gom Player
If you’re not comfortable in using the ready made .reg file above or wants to learn how to manually change the logo to override the advertisement in GOM Player, you can follow the simple steps below.
1. Run GOM Player.
2. Press F5 key to open the Preferences window.
3. Ensure that General is selected at the left hand sidebar, followed by clicking on the Logo tab.
4. The default logo selection (Default Skin Logo) will show the advertisement. You can either select gom.jpg or gom_orange.jpg to prevent the ads from showing up. You can also optionally click on the “Get More Logos” button to download more logos from the official GOM Player’s website.
The third and final method is to simply run an ad blocker software in Windows that is able to scan the network traffic to detect advertisements and block them. Do take note that we’re not referring to ad blocker extensions for web browsers as they only work in the web browser but not on other third party applications.
Colleen the golden morning breaks rar. We’ll show an example on how to block GOM Player ads with Adguard for Windows which is a shareware program with 14 days free trial.
1. Download Adguard for Windows, install and run it.
2. Click on Settings located at the bottom left of the program.
3. Go to Filtered Apps, scroll to the bottom of the filtered apps list and click on the “Add Application” button.
4. Adguard will start scanning your computer for available applications. Look for GOM Player in the list and tick the checkbox followed by clicking the Add selected button. If for some reason Adguard did not find GOM Player on your computer, you can click the “Browse for executable” button to manually add the GOM.exe file to the list.
After adding GOM Player to Adguard’s filtered apps list, you will still see an advertisement box in GOM Player’s video screen when there is no playback but it is a transparent box without ads.
Additional Notes: Please reconsider before blocking the ads on GOM Player because the ads implementation is non-intrusive and it is an efficient way to keep the program as freeware.
Change (logo) after go to
C:Program Files (x86)GRETECHGOMPlayer and delete popup.exe and you are Done
Just change your skin (for example to inspirant) and then all ads are goneReply
thanks for the tip :)Reply
Awesome. Thank you.Reply
Very helpful thanksReply
You’re a genius. Thanks.
Thank YOU works!
Yes. Works. Thank you!Reply
Bloody annoying (a hidden feature for the last few versions I suspect that has just been turned on) but easy to fix. Block outgoing connections for GOM.exe in the Windows firewall settings and no more ads.Reply
Ad pop ups are once again appearing but as fabi has said there is no ADPOP option in the registry to adjust. Also the mentioned popup.exe is not in the program files area to delete now!
Any update to a method of removal for the new version would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you raymond. This is very helpful.Reply
i just removed popup.exe file from installation folder and that’s it ;-)
anyway, thanks to Raymond for advice to SysTracer
Awesome. I was getting so fed up I was going to use another media player. Thank you very much!Reply
amazing, many thanks. Nice reverse trick :)Reply
Thank you Raymond a lot for this trick!Reply
Thank you a lot, very helpfulReply
I use GOM strictly for watching the GSL and was getting adds at shutdown, i say was because this fixed that.
I've discovered that the 'slider bars' that should be displayed when there is more content than can be displayed in a window aren't displayed or only appear momentarily.
The Finder window in all previous versions of OS X displayed a slider bar on the right edge of the window when the vertical height of the full list of files in the directory exceeded the vertical height of the current window. A second slider bar would appear at the bottom of the window when the horizontal width of the window was less than the horizontal width of the content to be displayed.
The vertical slider bar on the right side of a window will appear momentarily when you use the scroll wheel on your mouse but disappears as soon as you stop moving the wheel. I don't know about the behavior of the horizontal slider bar as I would have to find where I put my old Apple mouse with the rollerball.
The place where this is more aggravating is in the System Preferences window that can't be re-sized. Open the Desktop & Screen Saver panel in System Preferences. In the Apple > Desktop Pictures pane, you will see the vertical slider bar appear momentarily and then disappear. It will re-appear when you scroll vertically but disappears as soon as you stop scrolling.
This is pretty basic stuff. How could this not have been discovered during testing of the release?
Any way to correct this problem? Do I need to wait for OS X 10.9.1 before upgrading any other systems?
