Can you tell me if I need to spend money on a programe called Reimage. I tried the free scan which told me I had certain critical problems on my HP G72 laptop,Win.7. At the moment I have Norton internet installed, would this program have not detected the problems found by Reimage? I do not wish to waste my pension on something that is not really required. Thank You. PS: what internal hard-drive would you recommend for this laptop?.

Regarded as scareware, it's a scam to get you to pay for the program to fix non-existent problems, read this thread on computerhope.com ClickHere
