    TAP - Windows Apapter Version 9 installs every boot up


    Hi,
    Firstly I don't know it this should be in this section or in the network section, but every time I boot up, my reliably monitor always says successful installing of Tap -Windows Adapter Version 9. I've done some research and it apparently comes from installing a VPN software (Which I don't remember).

    I have no idea on how to install this driver as about once a week, the driver will appear in the device manger, and I will get an "undefined network" in the network and sharing centre.
    The time it does appear in the device manger I right click it and click "uninstall" which it does, but next boot up reliably monitor will say the driver installed, even tho it does not list it in under a device or networking and sharing monitor.

    Is there a way to delete it?
    I read somewhere, where apparently it was in the registry which I tried to delete but it kept says I did not have permission or something along those lines.
    Thansk
