    • Press “Windows key + X”.
    • Type “Troubleshooter” in the Search box and hit enter.
    • Select “Hardware and Sound” from the Troubleshooter Window.
    • Select “Hardware and Devices” under Devices option.
    • Follow the On Screen instructions.


    Method 2: I suggest you to uninstall and install the network adapter drivers as below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Try updating the DVD\CD-ROM drives from device manager.

    • Press Windows key+ X and click on
      Device Manager
      .
    • Expand DVD\CD-ROM drives.
    • Right click on the driver select Update Driver Software.

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file9
    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.
