I found this thread while searching for advice on how to remove Advapi.
I have found exactly the same on my PC as detailed in the first post.
Security wise I have Comodo Firewall, Avast anti-virus, Spybot S&D, Adaware, AVG Antispyware and Spyware Blaster installed on my PC all up to date and used regularly.
I downloaded and installed F- Secure as advised. Whilst installing it informed me that it was incompatible with Adaware and I permitted it to uninstall Adaware. Installation completed and PC restarted. I first got a message that Avast would shut down as it was incompatible with F-Secure. F-Secure then needed to connect to the internet to update itself before it could begin to scan.
I then found my internet connection was disconnected and after trying to repair several times found that no matter what, I could not connect to the internet. I tried to restart the PC thinking it would solve the problem however, it did not. I then uninstalled Avast, rebooted computer but still no internet connection.
I then found that my ATI catalyst control centre would not work either. By this time i had, had enough and uninstalled F-Secure, restarted my computer and internet connection and everything seemed to be working fine. I reinstalled Avast and Adaware using the tutorials posted here and am now writing this explanation.
Is there any other way to get rid of ADVAPI from my PC as there are too many problems with F-Secure.
Thanks in advance for any help with this problem,
