    reimage repair showed up on my computer warning of deleting files unless purchased. It just appeared without opening anything. What is going on??

    Hi Ed,

    back up any files you have like pics and docs etc, it sounds like you only had the app for a limited time??. ;););) Did you notice anything about a time limit when you installed the app??. :):):)

    Ran a search on reimage repair- found this.
    Once this malicious program is installed, whenever you will browse the Internet, unwanted advertisements will pop-up on web pages that you visit. These ads are aimed to promote the installation of additional questionable content including web browser toolbars, optimization utilities and other products, all so the adware publisher can generate pay-per-click revenue.
