Hello every one:) I have a little problem with my computer, especially in the device manager. 1 week ago, I noticed some new devices appearing endlessly when rebooting in the 'Network Adapters' section.
Downloads OpenVPN 2.4.4 -- released on 2017.09.26. Version 9.21.x) for Windows Vista and above. Source code for both tap-windows drivers is available on GitHub. Updating drivers for TAP0901 from C: OemVista. Dell Venue 8 Windows 10 Drivers here. inf. Drivers installed successfully. It only happens on win 10, the other windows versions all fine.
These were something like TAP-Windows Adapter V9 and TAP-Win32 Adapter OAS with a number at the end. I had something like 6 of them. I looked for this on the Internet, and learned that it was part of a VPN service. Because I don't want any VPN, I uninstalled these devices, and to prevent them from reappearing, I also deleted the drivers.
Everything was fine when I rebooted, and I was happy. 2 days later, I deleted my account, to create a new one, Administrator this time (because I wanted a new account). And NOW, I see a LOT of 'Unknown devices' under the 'Other devices' section, and some in 'network adapters', and all of these cannot be deleted:( When I look in their properties (Hardware ID's) it's written: tap0901 and in other sections, things like 'setupapi.dll -18' or 'NetCfgx.dll' or 'wlaninst.dll'. I joined 2 screenshot. What is the problem? And above all, how to fix this?:) I didn't install anything and have already run Windows Defender and Malwarebytes (with heuristics and everything ticked), and they did not detect anything.
