Easy solution: Please get rid of RegCure, it is doing you no favours. You sure as heck don't need it on a clean installation.

Registry Cleaners do not actually solve anything. They tend to make any problems worse, sometimes fatal.

The only problem you need to worry about with the registry is when it goes bye-bye, and you'll know about it straight away, because the machine won't boot without it.
