Windows 7: Network Adapters Cannot Start

03 Nov 2013   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Service Pack 1
Network Adapters Cannot Start

Device Manager indicates the following for Network adapters:
Microsoft ISATAP Adapter
Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #2
Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
All but the Realtek have the yellow diamond with exclamation point and these three indicate that "This device cannot start. (Code 10)".

Since these are not able to start, can I either disable them or uninstall them or will that cause some other problem?

I am running another program that is having an issue with the fact that I have two network adapters. My thinking is that if these three were disabled or uninstalled it would solve that issue.
