I recently deleted some versions of Microsoft visual C++ to save disk space. My laptop stopped connecting to the wifi soon after that. First, an exclamation mark appeared over the connection and then the adapter by itself. It is not an issue with the wifi itself because other laptops work fine.

I know this is a big stretch...but how undoing whatever you did?


System Restore?  Reinstall removed apps?


That's the approach I would take.
