It worked once or twice; then the last time it left a spinning circle on my Word 2010 program and slowed it down enormously, but other programs still worked. I ran it again without change. I've been on the phone and on-line chat with eFix / Reimage for over 2 hours now; the tech ("Paul") removed one .dll file and rebooted, and now Explorer, Outlook, Firefox, and other programs stopped working entirely, with .dll errors. Escalating the problem to a supervisor is not helpful - one to 2-hour wait time for a call back. No wonder 75% of buyers delete the program! I'm hoping for a refund, too.
