Reimage Repair is a PC optimization tool and the brand name “Reimage” is known to make several computer security programs earlier.

The pop-ups or ads promoted by Reimage Repair are probably due the additional program that comes bundled with it. It seeks to convince you buy its full version to enjoy its complete service.

It is fully your choice whether you want to remove Reimage Repair or keep it in your PC. But one thing that you should always be careful is to uncheck the preselected additional files or components that come bundled with it as a by-default product.
