Just a couple of reviews here.

Warning do not try and download it from the Reimage web Site as they receive a straight red from WOT and a few of the other sites are poor as well.

That was the first one that I stopped at.
others give it good reviews but I have not had time to have a good look.
So just a matter of looking before you decide and don't download from the Reimage site.

Thanks, will check it out further before I do anything. I see their ad is now at top of Helproom page!

You don't need to pay for tools like this, there are many excellent free applications on the net that will do it for you. You could start off with a scan at PCPitstop and then ask advise here as to what apps to use. click here

Suggest you steer clear of Reimage.

At best it`s an expensive program/service of dubious quality; at worst, well ... see for yourself click here (WOT forum).

Yes stay clear, provider is right.On the 4th this
month I received a newsletter from PCA with this
and a link to the site.I informed FE,he is looking
in to this link.I am still waiting for his findings.
Regards Tonsie.

Hi all,

Contrary to some other reports I am absolutely delighted with it, £34.95 was well spent!

My computer kept freezing and I just couldn't understand it. I have Windows XP3 and always have the latest downloads. But my Sony computer is getting old bought 25th February 2002, so imagine the number of programs I have loaded in that time, as well as Haupauge WinTV and a Kworld tv USB!

Little has been removed even though many of those providers are now defunct. So some things were bound to have corrupted.

However, the free scan showed me that my security is fine, no infections, but did show some windows programs were not running to their potential!

I paid the year subscription and ran it all again. Took over an hour but since then, no problems!

I have to say that, having tried to move everything over to a new, Windows 7, computer and finding it very wearing, while I can or until the old lady gives up the ghost, I will stay with this one.

I do, of course have an external back-up drive and my XP layout enables me to transfer all data across (and the downloaded programs)in one hit. Installing them is another matter.

I do recommend you run the free scan, it does not alter anything and my, very strong, antiVirus etc did not indicate ant subversive problems.

In any case I set a restore point before I started and then reversed it after the scan until I made my mind up!

Hope that helps.

Freeware will do everything you want. But I am glad to see you are using a 2002 machine.

This post comes to you courtesy of a slightly more ancient Compaq laptop.

But I did buy a new one last year (it's downstairs) £379, Compaq CQ61 AMD/3GB/250GB HD/W7.
I recommend you ask Santa for a new mchine, you won't regret it.
