Remove ReiSystem.exe (Reimage System Protection)
ReiSystem.exe is a potentially unwanted application. First of all, we would like to assure you that ReiSystem.exe is NOT a virus or malware. Still, the problem is that this application acts a lot like a potentially unwanted software. As usual for such programs, it often goes bundled with other free software and in many cases the suggestion to install it is quite concealed. Users might not pay much attention to what exactly they install in addition to some free software of their choice, so they may click on Next or I agree buttons, without reading details contained in the advanced installation options. And this is how ReiSystem.exe penetrates into computers.
Another trait of ReiSystem.exe which gives us the grounds to classify it as potentially unwanted software is the fact that the program gives many fake reports about different errors that aren’t real. When the scanning is performed by ReiSystem.exe, this very procedure lasts for just a few seconds, whereas it is absolutely not possible at all at least to detect real system troubles within such a short period of time. However, within these few seconds ReiSystem.exe will report over 3000 (three thousand) troubles supposedly necessary to be fixed. For example, it will falsely report many Windows & Registry Errors, Performance Issues, Startup Programs, Junk Files and other troubles requiring attention and necessary to be fixed. Of course, this is all done in order to force users into paying money for its absolutely useless registration number.
ReiSystem.exe has a special process called Reimage System Protection. You may notice it as running when you access the Task Manager application of your PC. When trying to uninstall this program regularly users typically face many troubles, being not able to fully delete it. So, when they start their PCs next time, there will be another window by ReiSystem.exe to pop up. While using the computer users will be regularly bombarded by pretty intrusive alerts to purchase it full version. Hence, it will be not really easy for users to use their PCs freely without any distracting factors. ReiSystem.exe will be the distracting factor number one!!!
Our suggestion is that you do not tolerate this program in your system. When it is enabled, the system will operate extremely sluggish and may even freeze eventually. We therefore seriously urge you to undertake the measures below to fix the issue with your computer and delete this application immediately from your system.
