Reimage PC Repair is a licensed, US-patented technology listed on Google and .gov. It is available in 19 languages, and is used to identify damaged, not-updated, duplicate and potentially harmful files on a Windows Operating System, as well as stability issues that could be caused by application crashes. Per the type of file, it’ll either be replaced with an updated one, or completely removed.
The product works in a two-step methodology; the first- scanning and diagnosing the errors, and the second- automatically fixing the discovered errors. Scanning the computer is free of charge, and requires the program to be downloaded and installed on the computer. The fix itself is done automatically by replacing the corrupt OS components (files, registry keys, values) with updated ones that are downloaded from the company's cloud-based inventory and therefore require an internet connection. It can take up to a couple of hours to complete, and requires the user to purchase a license key, available in 3 different pricing plans- the basic one offers a single repair, the second, a 1-year unlimited use and the advanced version, a license for 3 computers with a 1-year unlimited use.
The latest version of the product includes a feature which identifies damaged and potentially harmful files upon downloading them to the computer. Unlike Anti-virus programs, Reimage will alert the user, rather than prevent the file from being downloaded.
Reimage uses a specially designed inventory of clean Microsoft Windows Operating System components.
Operating systems Reimage PC Repair supports: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
