Is there a FREE program like Reimage?

I get this question quite a bit. The short answer is: No. Let me explain why.

It All Adds Up

The sheer amount of work our developers and QA team put into maintaining Reimage’s repository would astound you. Unfortunately, there is absolutely no way we can justify making Reimage free. And any company and/or program that claims to do what Reimage does, for free, is simply, well,  incorrect.

Registry 101 & Why Your Registry Cleaner is Useless

10 Q&A’s about Your PC’s Registry & Registry Cleaners

Backstory

When I first came to Reimage, I had a lot to learn. I had no knowledge or experience in computer repair, being merely a content writer. My first few months working at Reimage, I had nothing but questions. One thing that completely mystified me was the topic of a computer’s registry and the role of registry cleaners in the PC repair market. I’d used them before on my own computer, in the effort to speed up PC performance and was convinced it was the be-all and end-all of home computer maintenance.

The Truth About Registry Cleaners

Part of the challenge Reimage encounters in the course of our marketing efforts is the public’s confusion on what we do. Being an innovative technology this is not surprising. However, it gets really insulting when we are compared to registry cleaners.

According to WikiPedia:

A registry cleaner is a type of software utility designed for the Microsoft Windows operating system whose purpose is to remove redundant or unwanted items from the Windows registry. However the necessity and usefulness of registry cleaners is a controversial topic, with experts not agreeing on their benefit. The problem is further clouded by the fact that malware and scareware is often being associated with utilities of this type.

Survey Proves, Reimage Reduces Time And Effort Spent On Malware

Eighty percent of respondents reported that it takes at least half a day to a day to clean, re-image, and restore PCs affected by malware“, this claim by GreenBorder Technologies has been released today and is, indeed, in keeping with Reimage research.  Their main claim is that if only a business is prepared for such disasters much time would be saved.

Reimage’s premise is much simpler: We don’t need preparation. The Reimage technology is initiated on an ad hoc basis. For future reference, if you haven’t invested in a system allowing to rollback the old system image, you should try using Reimage and cut down that annoying process to a 22 minute, one click solution.
