How is it possble for me to have all of these fricking connections????? See attached pic. I know that these are not all actual physical network adapters. Can I get rid of them/uninstall them??? Can this cause internet issues? They were ALL ENABLED before I took the pic.

***I also added a screenshot of my network adapters in my device manager....can someone possibly explain these to me. I know they are not physical, I just don't want to screw something up.

You probably installed some software that installs it's own virtual network device for whatever reason. VPN software often does this. Maybe it bugged out or maybe you reinstalled the software many times and it kept adding adapters.

Either way, you should be perfectly fine right clicking each one in device manager and pressing "uninstall". If you accidentally uninstall a real device it will just comeback after you reboot, though you might need to install drivers again for it.

Just uninstall each one.
