You realy should be careful using registry cleaners,they can do more harm than good.I googled regcure and its rated bad both with WOT and hphosts.I would only ever use a reg cleaner that backs up my system first.So if you have any problems you can restore your previous settings.A reg cleaner that takes out a wrong key could crash your system making it unbootable.

My first bit of advice would be to uninstal regcure.Download ccleaner a good product from piriform and leave it on default settings and use the broom part of the programme and let it clean your hard drive.Then I would defrag my hard drive with a defragmentation tool like auslogics defrag.Both of these programmes are freeware and will not cost you a penny unlike regcure.

Because you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/270800/newbiie-here/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
