1. Greatis Reanimator
Reanimator’s compact interface isn’t the most efficient or attractive design we’ve encountered, but it gets the job done. Since the program automatically checked for updates when we opened it, we clicked Backup System Files to create a backup of our system settings.

2. Virus Effect Remover
The program’s interface equally impressed and baffled us. While it looks very professional, it was so full of options, commands, and visuals that we never felt comfortable or in control with it, even when we were following the Help file’s instructions to the letter.
