    Network Connections folder empty 3 different PC's


    Just picked up my 3rd Windows 10 for no internet complaint.
    All 3 have empty "Network Connections" folders.
    2 laptops, 1 Desktop, different makes.
    All have Windows 10 before Creators update.
    Able to do an "Install/Repair (Thanks, Brink) on 2 of them. The other one wouldn't accept the install and had to do a Factory reinstall.
    3 of these in 2 weeks.
    Anyone else see the same problem?

    I just had one laptop do that very thing. It wouldn't accept a new USB adapter, either. Devices were all reported fine in Device Management, but weren't listed in Network Connections. This was with a Windows 10, pre-Anniversary Edition install. Nothing worked except a refresh.

    Thanks, Deacon,
    Google search shows up a few different alleged causes. VPN software, AVG,
    Maybe I'm over reacting.
