    Hyper-V Network Default Miniport Error Code 37

    I had Hyper-V installed and working on my Windows 8.1 Pro system without any problems until now.
    I was accessing the drivers via my network and it suddenly locked up on me and I couldn't connect to it.
    Upon further investigation I cannot access the Virtual Switch Manager and the Network Adapter shows up with
    "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37) {Operation Failed}
    The requested operation was unsuccessful."
    I have tried to uninstall and reinstall it manually both via the protocols in the network adapters and via the Device Manager but it still shows up with the same error.
    I have removed and reinstalled Hyper-V on Windows and I have rebooted continually to test it.
    I'm at a loss and don't know what to to to remove this fully and reinstall fresh. Any ideas or suggestions would be welcome.

    My suggestion is to try a system restore to a point before this all started happening. Try that and see if it fixes it.
