The publisher of the application is called Reimage Limited, a company that is based in Nicosia, Cyprus. The name Reimage is also featured on another PUP that is identical to eFix Pro. At any rate, the developer of the application is called Remote Software Fix Ltd. which is based in Tel Aviv, Israel. The application has been heavily advertised online so a lot of people have been tempted to download the application from its main website atEfix.com. The website features two versions of the program. The Pro and the Express, but because this article is focused on the Pro version, we will leave eFix Express for another time. The website is well-made, contains a lot of information about the functionality of eFix Pro, so let us do an overview of what this application is supposed to do.
Allegedly, eFix Pro is set to fix Windows errors, Blue Screen of Death error, damaged DLLs, computer freezes, virus damage, and damaged files of the operating system. Let us take a closer look at the scanning process itself. The program starts off the scan by gathering information about the computer’s hardware. Information and details, regarding the processor, motherboard, video card, and other modules will be displayed for whatever reason. Hard drive space seems to be something worth scanning for to this application. All of the aforementioned information is presented in the “Your PC profile” section. The section that goes after is it called PC stability. This section is bound to always be full of errors. It scans Windows application logs to find which applications have crashed in the past regardless whether the programs are working fine at the moment. PC security section is where the information about detected malware infections is displayed. Testing has shown that the application is really capable of detecting moderately dangerous malicious applications. Once you click “Start Repair” you will redirected to its website Efix.com. You will be offered to buy one license for €61.95. Marketing tactics praying on the gullible are in play here. You will be offered to buy the second for more than half the price of the first one.

However, you will not get your money’s worth, because the application is set to detect errors that occur naturally in Windows regardless of the version. Registry errors occur constantly, but they do not put your computer at risk. Malware detection seems to work, but there are other, more capable, applications that can do the job better.
