Once your computer has been infected with a virus, it's no longer the same. After removing it with your anti-virus software, you're often left with lingering side-effects. The symptoms vary, but the bottom line is the same: Your computer doesn't work the way it used to. Your favorite programs crash frequently, your registry entries are a mess and even your wallpaper is mysteriously missing.
Why did this happen? You've already removed the virus. Shouldn't the havoc it caused go away, along with it? What about the damage caused to your system? Isn't it simply erased, along with the malware that caused it?
Technically, your computer might no longer be infected, but that doesn't mean it's error-free. Simple removing a virus can actually harm your system.
Many Trojans and viruses do not advertise their presence on your computer. Viruses can surreptitiously infiltrate your PC, and both the files and the system will remain operable. Trojans can hide themselves in and secretly corrupt your PC without you suspecting anything is wrong.
This is the reason an antivirus program is so essential.
Reimage is a complementary solution to your anti-virus software. Your anti-virus software is there to detect new threats, terminate them and constantly protect your PC while Reimage is there to heal the damage these viruses have already caused.
That's why a full system scan of your entire hard drive with a good anti-virus program is always recommended after a Reimage repair.
Reimage uses a number of different virus engines simultaneously (such as our partner's, Avira) and a custom virus engine, developed by our R&D team. We use white lists together with black lists to better detect what should and should not reside in your operating system. This allows us to pinpoint and exterminate harmful components.
The Reimage repair automatically compares system files with the Reimage repository files. Infected files are easily pointed out and then replaced with healthy ones. Infected files locked by viruses or by your operating system will be replaced when you reboot your PC.
Reimage is the only program that has the ability to clean virus damage!
