That driver is available through Windows Updates. Make sure yours are up to date.


You can't uninstall that adapter -- it is part of the OS. But you can disable it.


Type cmd in the search bar of the Start menu. Right click the command prompt icon and select Run as administrator. Then type in these two commands, one after the other:


netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow
That will remove the virtual adapter, which you really don't need.
