    Network Connections folder empty 3 different PC's


    Just picked up my 3rd Windows 10 for no internet complaint.
    All 3 have empty "Network Connections" folders.
    2 laptops, 1 Desktop, different makes.
    All have Windows 10 before Creators update.
    Able to do an "Install/Repair (Thanks, Brink) on 2 of them. The other one wouldn't accept the install and had to do a Factory reinstall.
    3 of these in 2 weeks.
    Anyone else see the same problem?
    Pete

  2. Network Connections Folder is Empty in Windows 10

    Problem solved...

    I had a checkpoint secureclient vpn installed and for some reason that was the cause for it.

    I've uninstalled it and rebooted the pc and that solved the problem.

    If you are facing the same issue, try to remove any vpn clients and restart your pc, it might fix this issues which is still unclear why that happened.

  4. Network Connections folder empty 3 different PC's

    I just had one laptop do that very thing. It wouldn't accept a new USB adapter, either. Devices were all reported fine in Device Management, but weren't listed in Network Connections. This was with a Windows 10, pre-Anniversary Edition install. Nothing worked except a refresh.

    Thanks, Deacon,
    Google search shows up a few different alleged causes. VPN software, AVG,
    Maybe I'm over reacting.*Confused
