Reimage: The Best in Windows PC Repair

  Faffingwaste 20:32 01 Nov 2010

Having received today's PC Advisor Newsletter, I wonder whether its compilers might in future care to mark advertisements as such rather than circulate them in what appears to be the guise of editorial recommendations?

The breathless prose, complete with exclamation mark, about the wonders of this amazing repair service is curiously at odds with the track record of a provider that seems to have won but one 'award', viz: clearance from Softpedia re harmful downloads.

From what it has been possible to piece together on the 'Net (because the company's website is distinctly lacking in any 'About Us' information) it seems this is the locationally challenged outfit which having started around 18 months ago rapidly earned a reputation for scaremongering and distortion, not the least of the latter being a claim to having "fixed" over 1 million PCs.

Of course, it hadn't. Having been repeatedly caught out, the company has since sought to amend its claims and give the impression that, somehow, it really truly honestly seriously hadn't meant to mislead, well, anybody.

Hopefully then its current claim of a quick money-back guarantee will soon be free of counter-claims by disgruntled customers in various Internet fora.

Meantime, might PC Advisor consider that when it sends out an email saying 'Reimage: The Best in Windows PC Repair', recipients could be forgiven for thinking PC Advisor actually means precisely that.

Unless, of course, PC Advisor genuinely does, in which case a link to the PC Advisor review in which Reimage was given a Best In Class Award will be appreciated in any future email.
