RegCure Scam - YahooMessage.exe

I had trouble with my Yahoo Messenger and tried to find something in Google on how to fix it. I couldnít run Yahoo Messenger because of a missing file called yahoomessenger.exe. I found a software called RegCure by Pareto Logic that advertised that it can fix the problem. The site had a fancy website. I downloaded the software that was advertised at a discount and priced at $9.95. When I got my bill statement from Paypal it showed in the amount of $39.90. The software did not fix my problem. When I called several email addresses shown on their site, I did not receive a single reply. They donít even have a phone number provided anywhere on their site. Pareto Logic is located at 1827 Fort St, Victoria, BC, V8R 1J6 Canada.

I solved the problem on my own by uninstalling Yahoo Messenger and also uninstalling my anti-virus program (McAfee), then installed Yahoo Messenger again. The Yahoo Messenger started working again. I had to reinstall my Anti-virus program after.

Please beware!

You are not alone dynez when you think Regcure is not a good program. Many of us has had many programs from the program not working as advertised to Regcure billing us of the wrong amount.

Yea sure, registry easy you advertise is much better i am sure. what's up with all the squidoo sites. almost all squidoo site i see is some guy trying to promote his affiliate link for a scam.

u never need to pay for any registry cleaner. Just because you have some PC problem, it doesn't mean a registry cleaner can solve your problem.

I hate all software marketed this way. Do a proper research into your problem. If you don't know how to solve a comp problem, get a friend who knows how.

A computer problem rarely needs a purchase of a software. Go to a tech forum and ask for help.

If you don't know what a reg cleaner does, don't use it.

CCleaner, which is free can do all the cleaning you need.

Don't open up your wallet so easily. All you had to do was a clean reinstall. That's the first you should try, not pay for something you just saw on Google.
