    One thing you could try first: When you uninstall the NIC, there should also be a box you can check to also uninstall the driver. That would give you a clean install of the driver after a reboot - using the new one you just downloaded. I'd try that first before reverting to v1607.

    So before I delete the NIC and driver, run the setup for the driver and then reboot?

    Or delete the MIC and driver, reboot then run the setup for the new driver

    Go into Device Manager, select to uninstall the NIC, and it should have a box that you can check at that point to also uninstall the driver. Let me have a look in my system........

    EDIT: I seem to recall that when you get the box that says "warning you are about to uninstall this device from your system" there is also a little box you can check to uninstall the driver as well. Not seeing it on mine, so it may have changed at some point during the Windows 10 endless updates.

    You already tried uninstalling it using the Realtek driver software, and that didn't work, so maybe the only option left is to revert to v1607 and try disabling the NIC just before updating to v1703.

    Yes, this is a prime example of the leftover baggage in W7>W10 upgraded systems.

    Well unfortunately it's just deleted my main account and all its data. So I have no previous version to return to or restore points....and still no internet access in this version.

    There goes 7 years of stuff, including all my current songs and current projects....which as a freelance musician and composer is pretty bad -_-

    I suppose now is time for a clean install?

    When selecting the option to roll back to an old version it told me I had to delete the new account that was made in the new version. This was odd as I made the new account in the old version, so I checked the user accounts and it only had 1 listed. So I chose that to be cleared and it has cleared my main account as well as that 3rd account that had been floating around. To be honest I don't have a clue how it's happened. Not even too sure what to do now, I'm left with a system running a Windows version with no internet which I can't seem to rectify :/

    I have never heard of this before! That's crazy. I am so sorry this happened.

    Your data could be recovered using a recovery program., but you would have to stop using the computer - you don't want anything else written to the drive, which might over-write your data.

    A new hard drive would be required, and a data recovery program. The clean install would probably get the internet working. It would also give you a more stable operating system.

    Take a break; let me know what you want to do.

    Thanks and no worries, it's a shame but I'm a very talented musician and composer so I'll just make new music. You've been excellent help so far and I know you did all you could to help.

    I think it's time to just do a clean install. I can do that on my current hdd and don't need to 're purchase Windows right?

    Sorry to see your loss.

    Yes. It will have digital rights that's recorded on a server.

    Would you like instructions on a clean install or can you handle that?

    I previously would have thought I can handle it, but after current events I think better safe than sorry right? So if you could instructions would be wonderful please!
