    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.
