The entire Fixing process involved five steps:

I deliberately installed Reimage Repair on my older PC, which had a lot of problems. And after completing the entire fixing process, I was able to notice a considerable increase in speed and few issues too got automatically fixed. The results were surprising, and the computer was working fast again as before. The fixing process takes a lot of time, an hour or so but it is worth the wait. You need to reboot your computer so that the locked files can be replaced and you can notice the change.

If you wish to uninstall Reimage Repair, you can do it easily via Control Panel > Programs & Features > Uninstall a program.

How does Reimage Repair fix Windows?

This was the question that came to my mind while I was using this tool, so I decided to include it in this post. Firstly, Reimage will scan for faulty files and other ‘fixable’ errors. Then it will remove all the corrupt and error-causing files and replace them with new healthy files from a continuously updated online database. The online database contains over 25,000,000 healthy original files that are downloaded by Reimage Repair to fix issues with your computer.

Reimage has filed an application to patent this technology:

Making the computer work means making all of its components work. A component is software or its part that can be fixed, reinstalled or removed. Formatting the hard drive and reinstalling everything back is a way to repair computers. Removing a faulty program may solve a problem. Updating or patching may yield good results. Fixing a component will resolve the problem without affecting on other components. Although there are various ways to make the component work, the nature of the solution is the same—in order to make the computer work its faulty components must be repaired.

To know more about the working of the tool, you can click the small round Settings icon in its UI, and you will be redirected to a web page telling you about the background processes occurring during the entire process.

Other details you may want to know:

  1. Their servers are hosted on the Rackspace cloud, behind a firewall, and it is scanned by McAfee and Norton Symantec.
