Where did you see that your computer had registry errors?
There are many websites that say your computer has serious problems and you must purchase their software to solve them. This is a scam.This software has one purpose and one purpose only - to separate computer users from their money.

Like LMiller7 says, it is a scam & you are probably infected already.

Here is the first step, it is not the last. We will probably have to dig deeper.

Run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ( MBAM ) Free Version. Use Quick scan. Copy and Paste the contents of the log please.
Make sure you uncheck > Enable free trial < during install.
If your MBAM log indicates "No action taken." That's usually a result of NOT clicking the Remove Selected button after the scan.
Quick Scan versus Full Scan

You need to let us know what issues you are having. Registry cleaners rarely fix anything - they just remove old invalid entries which make precious little difference to performance anyhow. Don't believe what they claim on those fix-all websites.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you think your registry is cluttered with errors, then best way to remove these errors is to use a reliable free registry cleaning software. I would recommend you to either use or that are considered best and not too aggressive when cleaning registry.

I also experienced having junk files and registry errors. To top all that my computer was very slow. I already knew back then that there are tons of free stuff to download that promise to deal with registry errors and make your computer perform faster. I realized then that I should choose carefully and go for the paid versions (with auto backup, scheduler, and easy to use software). I went to and it worked for me. In addition to that, I also checked Malwarebytes to deal with malware.
