How to Remove Reimage Repair Completely from Windows 10?
Don’t know how to remove Reimage Repair completely from your PC? Is there a good way to uninstall it away? “Hi there. Earlier today, I was browsing the web and then I got a pop-up telling me I had 400+ errors, 1 malicious worm, and other clutter on my system and it required me to pay $70 for a program called Reimage Repair to get rid of them. Although I clicked “no thank you”, since then, using my computer for the internet has become a nightmare. Whenever I opened a page, whether it’s on Firefox or Chrome, it opened another website called something like Reimage or Reimage Plus in a new tab. On my desktop I noticed Reimage Repair was installed without my permission. I didn’t need this stuff, so I decided to uninstall it. I got a warning saying that “An attempt has been made to uninstall Reimage. This may be an admin generated action, but could also be the results of a virus or malware attack. Allowing this action will leave your computer unprotected.” Is that true to the claims? Can I uninstall Reimage without concerns about lack of protection? How do I remove Reimage Repair safely and completely? I also want my browser fixed. Please help.”
