    Network process freezes when switching from wifi to wired

    My motherboard has a built in wifi card, but ofcourse I use wired.

    I use wifi for troubleshooting connections sometimes.

    When I am done with wifi, I disable wifi - about to enable ethernet. But the wifi does not disable I click disable a few more times but nothing. And I can not enable ethernet.

    - Sometimes it can stop on enabling ethernet with that small loading rectangle screen, that will appear for ever...

    The only fix when the network process hangs is to hard restart.

    I restart the pc from start menu but it stops on the screen "restarting (spinning thing)" - it still spins but spins for ever, so I have to press my PC reset button.

    On bootup (i have a 3 places to click in a picture for the password) when I click the 3 places, it is still waiting for more clicks or "start over", if i wait long enough it finally realises I have already done the 3 clicks correctly and lets me in.
