Reimage review, manual and guides


Reimage review

Reimage is a program that is a bit different from others. It is a registry-fix, PC optimizer, and antivirus scanner in one[1]. The software was released back in 2007 and it was developed by a company named Reimage.

This company is known to be honest and reliable, so users can trust them.

This application is unique because it can fix Windows OS files that are damaged, or downloads new ones if they are missing. In this way, the app is a great thing to have if you want to try fixing your PC from random freezes[2] and system glitches.

The program can prevent your computer from freezing.

It is worth mentioning that Reimage Restore is bound together with Avira AntiVir engine, which is a very powerful anti-malware tool. In that way, the application works both as a file restoration tool and an antivirus software.

Pros Cons Verdict
Powerful Distracting pop-ups A very basic, yet reliable, application for fixing Windows OS files

No unnecessary features No settings
Easy installation

Reimage download and installation

Reimage supports Windows XP (32 bit), Windows Vista (32&64 bit), Windows 7 (32&64 bit), Windows 8 (32&64 bit), Windows 8.1 (32&64 bit) and Windows 10 (32&64 bit).

There are versions for Mac and Android too. Users can download Reimage from our website. The file should be downloaded in a few seconds.

When it is done, open the file and follow further instructions to install Reimage on your computer.

The download and installation are quick.

We had no problems while downloading or installing the software. The process was simple and clear. The installation file is very small-sized.

Although the installation is quick, it can be misleading, as it is indicated that you can choose not to perform a computer scan after the installation is complete. But it is literally not possible to complete it without scanning the computer because, at the end of the process, there is no “Finish” button, but only one choice – “Scan computer now”. To avoid that, you have to click “X”.

After clicking “X”, it asks if you really want to abort the installation. This means that, in order to complete the installation, you still have to scan the device.

Reimage test results

We tested Reimage for about 30 days.

The computer that we used the program on had an Intel i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and HDD. The operating system was Windows 10 64 bit.

The scan results were very accurate. The software found many threats on the computer, even the smallest ones. It is great to have so much information presented after the scan: PC Profile, Stability, and Security. After the scan, the application provides a lot of info on each topic, and also offers a summary.

However, the possibility to fix the PC is available only to paid users.


The program itself is very simple and powerful. Many threats and various damaged files were found and removed just with one click. To start a scan, you only need to open the app and wait until the scan is completed. After that, very detailed information will be shown for some of these files. But there is not much information about security issues, for example.

Simplicity is often a plus when it comes to software, but in this case, the application is a bit too simplistic. There are no settings at all. All you can do is to scan the whole computer and remove threats and viruses. There is no quarantine function[3], no logs about previous scans, or other similar features.

Reimage will find even the smallest system errors.

What is more, repetitive notifications can get a little annoying after a while. Your movies or games can get minimized when the notification pops up. And as there are no options, you cannot turn them off.

The final verdict

Reimage is a very powerful and useful software for businesses or individual home use. There is a huge chance of finding even the smallest errors, threats, and damaged files on your computer. This is one of the most unique pieces of software, which offers not only a virus scan, but a scan for junk files, registry errors, and more.

It will automatically download and install missing Windows OS files and replace damaged ones. The more negative aspects would be distracting notifications and the lack of settings, but all in all, the application is quite reliable.
