How do I hide VPN/virtual network adapters?

I have several VPNs and Virtualizing software installed, and they have this virtual network adapters in the network and sharing centre. In the "connect to a network menu", one shows working internet connection, while the other one shows no internet access

How do I get rid of those entries? I dont mind messing with the registry or the system files.

Usually just going into Device Manager then to network adaptors, right clicking and disabling the unused virtual adaptors works for this.

No disabling the adapters will make the softwares fail to work. I just want to hide them.
