    What to do after running netcfg -d command


    I have a windows 10 laptop
    Have been using it for past 6 months, no issues
    All drivers are installed correctly
    My roommate ran netcfg -d command
    All network adapters are gone.
    Trouble even accessing my desktop
    How to bring adapters back.
    Can log in using the Windows administrator account.
    sfc/scannow did not fix the issue
    Please help

    Hi and welcome to Tenforums.

    Please see if this tutorial helps. You'll need to re-set up your NICs.

    Running netcfg -d wipes everything network and NIC related. I hope you have your network drivers downloaded and saved someplace. You also need a current W10 ISO.

    Now you have to run a repair install to get the networking back into the OS.

    After that you'll need to reinstall your NIC drivers.

    Try Device Manager
    Right click the computer name at top
    Select Scan for hardware changes

    Restart your machine


    Connect Ethernet cable to your machine and to the ISP's adapter (cable modem)

    If you have a connection, manually run Windows Update
