Are or were you running Trend Micro AV? Some software installs items that are seen as device drivers.
The WAN miniports are a legitimate part of your PC. Do not remove them.

Your screen capture shows two of them disabled. I will assume you did that while trying to uninstall them. The other 3 with the ! probably can not start. Might be due to the disabled ones. Though I`m not sure why Trend Micro is still showing up if you ran only the on-line scan.
Just checked several of my PCs for verification. While they are named differently, probably due to type of ISP used = cable, DSL. I have 5 miniports as well. I`m guessing you are on cable. Just switched to DSL which uses PPPoE and I noticed that that had been changed\add`d as (Descriptions) on one of my miniports.
Some info on WAN miniports from MS.

Let me see if I understand this. The log showed these problems prior to you disabling them? Prior to you disabling them they showed the !? This accrued after an infection and subsequent clean-up?

Whether they are slowing the boot process or not they are required. The fact they have a ! by them possibly\probably indicates a corrupt\improperly installed driver.
The OS knows it is supposed to load them and will try several times before giving up. This is what I believe is being shown in the log. Have you tried updating or uninstalling\reinstalling the drivers?
Removing them completely is not the fix.
