Windows 7: Every time I boot, have to uninstall and re-install network adapters.

Every time I boot, have to uninstall and re-install network adapters.

I have had a lot of issues lately, had to do a complete recovery using factory pre-installed backup. I have a post about my OS hanging that somehow isn't an issue at the moment, but seems to be intermittent.

Now, every time I boot my system, my network adapters don't pick up wireless signals, and I have to go into device manager, uninstall and reinstall the drivers, then it picks up signals right away. It's just a pain in the neck. What can I do to manage this issue. By the way, my VPN TAP has nothing to do with the issue, I've tried disabling my VPN before shutdown and uninstalling the TAP.
