No. If you have a card or ability that will cancel or redirect the curse, you can use it. Otherwise, you have to resolve the effects of the curse before you do anything else.

I do not know if i understand what you are trying to say. Cannot see which cards are lost before using the wishing ring?

When a Curse is played on you, the Wishing Ring needs to be played immediately to interrupt the Curse. What "Cannot see which cards are lost before using the wishing ring" means is you can't wait until after the Curse is in use and cards are selected, then decide you don't like the cards that were lost and then use the Wishing Ring to undo everything.

The Wishing Ring blocks the Curse when it's about to start; once it's started, it's too late.

GranitePenguin has it right here, so that's official confirmation.
