This is just a filter within uBlock Origin blocking you from loading a page, because it believes the page contains riskware.

I have the same filter present in my version of UBlock Origin.

If you do not believe that page should be blocked then you can ...
  • Whitelist the site.

.... and then it won't be.

At the very least, its a PUP (Potentially unwanted program) but I think you should avoid reimage at all costs.


It has registry cleaning capability and, of course, thats a definite no-no.

Thanks, I have had Reimage for years, does it cause problems? I may have had something go wrong and it might have been Reimage, I don't know if it was or wasn't, your post is the first I have heard this.What are some common causes that Reimage can affect?

I may have been a little hasty, still not sure.


This is what AdwCleaner thinks of it.... https://www.techsupportforum.com/for...ml#post7673128

About registry cleaners, you can read here, here and here.

Heres what our learned colleague Glaswegian has to say,

Not to mention Microsoft's statements about registry cleaners, and not using them:

Microsoft support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities

@Deejay100six,

Unsurprising, as I do not know of a single Windows subject matter expert who approves of the use of any registry cleaning utility. They're snake oil, at best, and can cause catastrophic failure, at worst.

I just always trot that one out, with full labeling, as you can't get more "straight from the horse's mouth" than a statement from Microsoft on the issue.

When it comes to registry cleaners the old adage, "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread," applies.

Now, after all that, I use a number of utilities for other purposes that include a registry cleaner as one of their functions, I just never use the registry cleaner function.

The following article by quietman7 gives a pretty succinct description of why you should not use programs that "optimise" your computer ... https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/for.../#entry2853053

The article I've linked to includes links to a number of other articles on the same subject.
