Hi. My PC has too many TAP-Windows Adapter V9's and none of them are working. I think this is also why I couldn't get Tunngle to work on my PC as well. Please reply with a fix for this problem. It's very critical.ssdasdsa.jpg

ADeel Tap Connections are created by IPv6, any time you connect to a hotspot, or when you connect to your Homegroup. A lot of them are just "Ghosts" that are leftovers from previous connections that you no longer use. Others are still going to be used if you still connect to certain Access Points.

In reality, they are just "Virtual" connections. TAP is a hold over from the Windows 9x & NT days. Basically a Legacy connection. If you do wish to remove them and want Windows to recreate only those that you use those Hotspots. Do it from "Safe" mode, not when you are logged in as a user.

When you reboot and log in as a user, the TAP for your Access Point that you are using, will be recreated.

But how do I remove them all at once. They are nearly thousands and it would take forever in deleting them. Any quick method ?

I told you ho to remove them. There is no easy way. Something you are running, keeps duplicating them. Or your computer is infected.
