this "eusing" is a registry cleaner they tend to do more damage than good.

If this program has an undo, then I would use that to get back to where you were.

Once there, I would STOP using ANY registry cleaner.
Also uninstall this eusing.

Yes, I would email them, but do not mention anything about removing their product.
If you do, they then just may not help you get things working as they should.
