The flashget.exe process is a part of the Download Manager from FlashGet.com. This Download Manager aims to avoid problems when downloading files: Speed and management of downloaded files. It supports more than bit torrent files, segmented downloading, and FTP recognition. It allows you to download multiple files from the same site in a Windows Explorer-style interface.

The flashget.exe process can also be the one added by the W32/Rbot-AGZ WORM/IRC backdoor trojan. You should clean it away immediately. 

Recommendation:

The flashget.exe process is a non-essential system process. If you don't use it for downloading, you can disable it. If you use it, make sure alway check the file location to see whether if it is disguised by virus/trojans. If the file locates in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder, it has security risks to your system. You should then clean it away immediately.

Some Adware apps report this as a potential risk to be on system or as active. I've used for 4 years and so far any risk depends on the content that is chosen for download via flashget. Be mindful of what you use flashget to download. No problems experienced otherwise. Can siphon off bandwidth from connect speed, is controllable.
