As I understand Reimage, it checks for problem/corrupt files and replaces them with fresh files such as executable or dll files. 

 

But, I am thinking that Reimage sounds like a good idea.  Is it?

 

It also is supposed to remind you to update drivers.  I always keep my drivers updated and never allow a program to tell me to update.

My opinion: BAD idea.

 

This software does nothing you can't do yourself - for free. They want $70.00. Heck, give me your address, I'll come over and help you out for half that. (Just kidding.)

 

Don't install this kind of junk on your computer. Save your money.

Thank you so much for this information.  :bananas:

I ran scannow via the command area.  The command area said that some files were 'corrupt but unable to fix.'  The information on the log said 'everything has been fixed.'

 

I am not sure if I need to do something further.

 

Thanks again, a happy dance is in progress!  Pat

Glad your banana is happy now :busy:
