Do you have Virtual Box or Avast antivirus installed?

I don't use Avast. I think I may of previously had a Virtual Box or something like that installed but I removed it a while back.

Download AutoRuns and do a search for VboxNetAdp. Uncheck the box next to any VboxNetAdp found. Do not Remove it, only uncheck the box.

Thanks, I was able to find it in Autoruns. What's the difference between unchecking the box and removing it?

Unchecking disables it, removing it removes the registry entry. If you find that the computer acts okay after unchecking you can go ahead and highlight the entry then click on the Red X in the menu bar.
