Reimage is a computer repair software that improves your hardware performance, improves security, and optimizes your computer’s maximum performance. It is great for cleaning and optimization as to keep it at peak performance. It can also remove spyware and malware, which can damage your files.

Scanning for issues

To fix them, Reimage first scans your computer to look for any particular issues that may cause its performance to be slower. The first part of the scan looks at the hardware issues of your computer. This includes heat levels, hard disk speed, and memory. This is a good starting point as most of these issues go generally undetected because of a lack of notification from the OS. They are also one of the common reasons for slower performance.

Reimage also tries to scan your computer for any sort of malware and virus. This includes Trojans, adware, rootkits, and the likes. These files are especially nasty and may cause damage to your computer’s files. They may also cause corrupt documents and the likes. By removing this, you are also increasing the security of your computer as some of these may also be sending information about your actions to a third-party without your knowledge. Some may also be using your PC as a bitcoin miner.

Reimage also checks your computer to look for any signs of software issues. These issues are often criticized as they can cause random reboots and sudden power outages. They may also cause freezing and sudden pauses while using the computer. A common scene for those with these issues is the Blue Screen of Death. By searching for all issues in the software of the PC, you can detect the cause of these and try to fix them for better performance. You can also look for any corrupted files in the registry and wrongly installed software.

They also have an operating system recovery feature. This allows you to replace system files of Windows that may cause critical issues in the software. By modifying system settings and registry values, you can avoid any corrupted files and revert any damage done by third-party programs.

Aside from PC, Reimage can also be sued for Mac and Android.

The Mac application has a quick junk cleanup feature that removes unnecessary data (which you can modify) such as browser cache and history. You can also choose to manage the storage of your Mac for faster computer performance. You can also keep track of the specifications of your Mac.

The Android Application can be downloadable through the Google Play Store. This also offers quick junk cleanup and optimization for your mobile phone.  A good feature is the weekly cache cleanup.

Cost

Currently, Reimage is offered for $69.96 for a year. This price can go down to as low as $37.95 depending on the offer that you will accept. They also have a refund policy which you can avail within 60 days of purchasing the product. This price is quite competitive and on-par with others.

Specifications

If you are planning to install the application, the requirements are as follows:

  • Reimage is available for Windows users with XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 Operating System. It does not offer service for Windows 10 versions.
  • Your computer must have at least 1GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor, 512 MB of memory, at least 40 GB hard drive and 15 GB of free space.

These system requirements are minimum and will most likely be met by a lot of computers. An update that makes it capable to be run by Windows 10 users may be a big help in improving its service, though.

Conclusion

What gives Reimage a bad impression for its users its aggressive marketing which causes others to mistake it as malware. Upon inspection of the actual product, though, one can see that it acts both as a computer performance optimizer and a security application. Similar to antivirus applications and computer optimization ones, Reimage targets both the computer’s speed and security.
