Reimage Removal Tips
Reimage is a potentially unwanted application (PUA). At first glance you could never tell that it is not a genuine PC optimization. It looks professionally and you can download it from its official page reimageplus.com. It also travels with AVG Safeguard Tool.

Indeed do not be surprised, if you start seeing messages informing you about the mistakes and errors inside your computer. Once you click those pop-ups you are directed to reimageplus.com where you are insistently offered to install this application. If the user downloads it, Reimage immediately stars running a full scan checking the stability of your computer and compiling the list of viruses, errors, and so on. Once it finishes the list, it presents you with a “Start Repair” button. If you click it, you are redirected to its official page once again and advised to purchase Reimage support for a life-time. Depending on your location, the total cost is approximately $70.
If you download the full package, you will probably install AVG Toolbar as an additional extension. Your home page and your default search engine will be changed to AVG Secure Search too. This is done during installation process and theoretically can be refused. However, almost no one reads the ‘End User Installation Agreement’ and so this extension ends up inside your computer.
