hello my name is xik i'm new to pc sorta my new build has had no problems for three months or so.

i use malwarebytes and microsoft security essentials to scan my pc on a regular basis.

well i got a new problem i don't know if its from something stupid i downloaded in the past or what but sometimes on a rare occasion i get a pop up that says

"drivercure" and something about not being installed right or something like that, im worried i need help with this pc stuff i cannot do it alone.

i was wondering if someone could help me through this and help make my pc run the best that it can thanks.

I suggest you start with uninstalling DriverCure.

In general drivers should be left alone unless you're experiencing some particular problem.

Re-run Autoruns, scroll down to "Task Scheduler"  section and UN-check:

 

+ "\DriverCure"

 

Restart computer, re-run Autoruns one more time and this time right click on "\DriverCure" and click "Delete".

It shouldn't bother you anymore.
