Fixed Blue Screen of Death Problem

I am a home / small business user.

Our computer had started to crash and the blue screen of death and error codes occurred frequently for an unknown reason.

I purchased Reimage softtware.

After the first scan....it was necessary to run Reimage in safe mode as instructed.

The software identified the damaged files and replaced them.

My computer is functioning perfectly for many months now without any problems.

I will renew the yearly subscription no bother and am glad to have such a programme available.

I would recommend Reimage highly.

Pros
Excellent Job done

I can't say enough about this program. My computer had been infected with something. I was getting script errors every few seconds. I did all the fixes I read about, but none worked. Then windows crashed. I purchased this program after I read it replaced damaged files as mine could not be repaired. I ran the program and left my computer on all night as it after 1 am and I was in a panic.

This program repaired my computer and now it is running like new. I am running IE10 and Windows 7 Home. If you are experiencing the above type problems, then buy it. I am one satisfied customer. I just knew I would have to spend a couple hundred to fix it. Thanks so much for a great product.

Also, I had to email support and the tech took care of my problem right away and was so polite and professional.

Reimage repair

I somehow contracted that nasty virus Live Security Platinum and was afraid that I would have to buy another computer. I accidentally got the virus when I went into a job finders site and somehow it was too late to click out of the screen after my computer warned me a a dangerous download. I tried all that I knew and could not uninstall. I even tried pressing the windows box and letter R simutaneously and pressing F8 right before the computer started downloading in the safe mode. Out of desperation (four days later) I tried this download and it has been sheer bliss. No sign of the virus. Please beware of the virus mentioned above. I was almost in tears. Thank u Lord for this program. I even called their tech support and they stated they could remove by remote for approx 90 dollars, but I was able to remove by self for free!!!! This software rocks.

Pros
It worked and it was free
Cons
None that I can see

ReImage

Great Product, it may take several passes over time but you will get everything fixed and up to date. All the windows installs are done for you and it will dump the ones that won't work and continue to finish. Then the next time you run it it will try the bad install again and get it to fit. It never gives up until it gets it all done, but at your pace. Highly recommend it for a clutz like me.

Pros
If you are an average user and Have Win 7, then reimage is great. It works really well.
Cons
Time consuming if you have a slow internet.

fantastic product

my windows 7 was completly messed up, corrupted files user account corrupted , things not working or never working.
I tried first with hp tech support but they were useless trying to sell me a new computer or telling me to go back to vista
or reload win7 disk. Then they told me to contact my local tech to fix it. I tried Reimage. They helped me after I ran the program and worked for hrs remotly to to fix this messed up computer. They are wonderful and really care about your computer. My computer workes better now than when it was new. I cannot believe that everything is working so good and I am completly thrilled with the Reimage program. I recommend it highly and will always use it.

fixes windows operating system

I found the service via Google. After reading reviews I deducted it's not a spam. I paid for one year license. The license key was sent to me via email however I did not immediately see where to type it. I called the Support number and spent 30 minutes listening to the support person explaining why my laptop was not working efficiently and she explained in a long way that an upgrade to the 5-Year license is beneficial. This was the only disappointing bit as it felt like a hard sell. The lady was insistent on making me understand that I need the upgrade. I turned out I did not need to talk to the support at all. Putting in the licence key fixed my laptop issue automatically. I may have other issues later on and I wanted to have the option to decide on an upgrade at a reasonable time later.

Pros
Fast, reasonably priced
Cons
Hard sell

Solved many problems

The first scan and repair takes a long time. Future runs are faster. All software and programs run faster, with no problems.
It would appear that it works best with a fast high end computer with a fast internet connection. I can't comment on support as I haven't required any. As to price, although it may seem high, I would suggest you get what you pay for and it appears a lot of work goes into designing and maintaining this software.

Pros
Much information and ease of use.
Cons
None noted so far.

First Impressions

It certainly put my PC back in tip-top shape after being plagued with the infamous blue screen of increasing frequency. Some things to consider. 1) I noticed that after I used it to repair damaged/incomplete files and download missing files, that Windows XP suddenly had a bunch of updates, upwards of 50. So not sure whether Windows is using older files it considers to be current or if Reimage doesn't really have the most up-to-date repository of files. 2) The report could be more useful by providing an indication of whether a file was missing or replaced, plus a date/time stamp from the file on the PC and from the replacement file. 3) It is not known whether the check for malware and all that stuff is using up-to-date information or a canned set of information that is not kept current. Because of that, I still use McAfee (have some issues with this too but that's another story) and Registry Medic. Regardless, this is a better product than any of the other so called PC Fix-it type products that I have used in the past.

Cons
A bit over-priced, but not by much.

Reimage saved my PC

My computer was so screwed up it would barely connect to the internet, then freeze. I read about Reimage and gave it a try. Even with a bad connection it saved the CPU from the trash bin. It took several hours, but the result was well worth it. My PC ran as fast or faster than when new. After two years of running well I had the same issues again and purchased another one year of reimage service. Presto, all repairs completed online in a few hours, and now windows system again works like new.
I would recommend to any family member or friend. No scam here, Reimage has twice rectified any and all issues with my PC.

Pros
Cleaned up all of my system woes, runs like it was new.
Cons
None so far, other than the clean up took a few hours longer than stated. Maybe there was a lot of repair, runs like new ro better now

Reimage Problem

Reimage may be good for most things. However, it does nothing to correct u bad User File Problem. Talked ot a Rep on line and they said they did not see my purchase, even though it is on My Charge Card??

Then I was told I would have to pay a sepatate fee to use the online service!! That certainly got my attention!
If the program could fix this User File problem it would be good. The fixing of the Stack is a good feature however

That stll leaves me unhappy with there service to help my problem.

Pros
Does a good job of scaning the system.
Cons
It does nothing for User Files problem!

More harm than good

During fix it removes all updates, When windows reinstalls updates the computer will not reboot. Finally getting the computer repaired I upgraded to 8.1 which fixed the update problem. Will never run again.

Former Reimage Product Champion

Reimage recently initiated a policy wherein a browser plug-in called “Babylon” is automatically installed on your computer during the course of downloading the Reimage software. Babylon is a browser plug-in for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. The toolbar overrides default browser settings, does not provide an option to automatically revert to previous settings, and is infamous for the complicated un-installation process. This behavior qualifies the software as malware in many users’ opinions. After failing to complete an uninstall of Babylon, I contacted Reimage support. It took the tech 57 minutes to uninstall Babylon.

It seems that the Reimage repair program is now a kind of Trojan horse that proliferates the Babylon browser technology. For me, the Babylon browser is markedly substandard, objectionable and very difficult to remove from your system. Prior to purchasing Reimage, I would urge all potential customers to research “Babylon” to understand what they’re in for.

Pros
Frequently corrects OS problems
Cons
Installs unwanted third-party software on your system

Not worth the price and it does not do a good job on repairing System Crashes

I installed the software because of the advertised ability to detect and repair all Blue Screen Crashes. After going through the pains of installation (including having to remove my Spybot/Search&Destroy Software and disabling my Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials) I ran a a scan. The result were it did not even find the 11 blue screen crashes I experienced over the past 3 months. They were the allusive Code 41, event 63 crashes.
Previous to installing I had asked Tech support, before I purcrhase this software will it fix this type of crash and was told it should resolve it. But, he added if he doesn't we have unlimited tech support and if that doesn't work, we will give you a refund. I am glad I didn't make the purchase. The final message from Tech support was "I hope you are aware that the crashes you are having are related to drivers and Reimage can't fix that.
My advice to you is that it does many things well, but you can get the same protection and repair from some very excellent free software. Unless you are a novice and want everything in one place don't bother.

Pros
multiple features
Cons
Does not repair Blue Screen Crashes as advertised.

virus/trojans

after running this program i ran a full scan with mcafee because while it was downloading new files it was downloading viruses and trojans that my mcafee picked up on , when i rebooted it installed the same viruses and trojans , make sure you run a full scan after it has finished doing what it does

don't buy it

I paid 199.00 for a lifetime antivirus. They say a third party was responsible but they are out of bussiness now. so my lifetime antivirus is no longer active w/o paying a yearly fee. That is " bull "They take no responsibilty for their software. Thay should be responsible when a vendor of their is selling their product and never mentions any third party.I was always led to believe they were the providers. How deceptive is that!!!!!

Pros
works well enough
Cons
no one in control of their cust. satisfaction

Terrible Software

First let me say, I was a software tester for several companies, including Microsoft, for more than 10 years.

I purchased your software to fix one problem – the vundo Trojan. You advertised in more than one place on the net that your software could fix that, and instead screwed up my computer. It did not get rid of the trojan, even though I ran Reimage more than 3 times. It took me 3 days and 3 other softwares to finally get rid of the Trojan. Your product advertised it could take care of the problem, not only did it do that, but it has screwed up all of my windows updates. I will have to contact Microsoft to try and straighten out my windows updates.

I have tried running Reimage at least 6 times to straighten out my windows update, it does not fix that problem. And in trying to fix the problem your software created, reimage ties up my computer for hours, so that I cannot use it for anything else. It just keeps deleting all the updates and reinstalling them over and over, but does not fix the problem that it created.

Your software is in no way ready for public use. It is sluggish and creates problems, instead of fixing the ones it says it can repair.

I want the $45 that I paid you for this software immediately credited back to my credit card. I am uninstalling your software, and if it causes me further problems, you will be hearing from me.

Ripoff

I had problems with MS Word 2016 freezing, disappearing/returning. Reimage scanned my PC ($39.95) and reported Trojans/viruses. Paid $99.99 for fix as I need my PC to edit for my job. Result?
1st attempt - didn't fix - also 2nd attempt didn't fix. Next day, 3rd attempt - same result - except now I have TWO users on my PC - myself and Owner. Myself has no docs. Owner has no bookmarks (which I need). Disputed payment with credit card company. Called Reimage to discuss with Finance Dept. Said they would call back. They didn't. Several hours spent on phone. $140 spent trying to fix PC. Don't believe I had any Trojans/viruses - they just tell you that to upsell the service. Also try to upsell 1-2 year service. I feel stupid at being conned by these people, but PC World and others recommend them! I hope I can get a refund. They guarantee for 7 days. I'm going to call every day if I can find the time an am able to deal with the total frustration.

Pros
None
Cons
Messed up my PC. Do NOT use this company!

I have asked for my money back - but all I get is emails from the Support Centre saying that if I do not reply within 72 hours - they will consider the case satisfactorily closed.

Pros
It looks good - in theory

probable sman

I have 3 discrete computers; 2 desktop and 1 laptop. I paid for 3 licenses, downloaded the program and ran it first on my laptop. Took an hour and seemed to be doing its righteous thing. Rebooted and then MS informed me I have 9 important updates to install on my Win 7 Professional system. Downloaded and installed these updates over and over and over ad nauseum. But even though they say they are installed, they aren't. The 'Control Panel' Update portion always fails to run and the other 'Taskbar'
notification is the only one that will, over and over again. Called the support line and eventually got through to a 'Service Rep' and we looked at a lot of stuff and then she told me I needed to speak with
a technician who would have to do manual intervention for $245, $590 or $1495 to "fix" MY problems.
Problems which NEVER occurred BEFORE I ran Reimage. Eventually we have agreed that they will refund my purchase price and they were unconcerned about any reviews I might write because they are such a big company. Their rating system does not contain zero`s or negative numbers because that is what I would assign their support and service.

Pros
$only 76.00 and I hope to get it back
Cons
24-7 support is a scam

Reimage PC Repair -destroyed my computer!

After spending over 40 minutes analyzing my computer the screen pops up with an explanation that it needs to reboot my computer into the "SAFE" mode to inspect it some more . It asks to do so and I made the mistake of clicking on "YES " this then rebooted my computer and instead of me having the choice as to how the computer would start up the REIMAGE software had changed my system to bootup to SAFE only and then it never made it to WINDOWS it just went to a black screen with no boot at all !! SO I now had a computer that would no longer boot to windows - just a black screen !!!
I have windows 7 and
had to go out and buy another computer - unfortunately with windows 10 which is also useless !!!!
I also had to buy recovery soft ware to try and save all my files . BTW the reimage software will run for many minutes just to make you think it is really doing a good job !!!!! When in fact I bet it only takes less than a few minutes to actually scan for viruses ! SAve your money this program cost me hundreds of dollars as I had to get a new computer that was not destroyed by their software - JUNK

Reimage

It didn't work. My computer runs slower and has even more problems. I almost lost all my photos on an external disk, used the driver detective to get them back again and now it's screwed up again. My photos are back but it takes forever to load them up. Refund is in process. It shouldn't have to cost anything and Norton didn't detect it either that it was bad which should tell you that it's okay but it's not.

Pros
It doesn't work at all; same problem
Cons
None
