All of a sudden I got a blank device manager and a permenant ethernet icon in Taskbar even if I am connected to a Wi-Fi

The rest is in the pics.

Yes and it didn't work, I don't want to perform a new installation , however, I found a video on youtube

suggesting backing up the registry then deleting the Enum subfolder of the CurrentControlSet subfolder of

the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder from the registry then rebooting otherwise I'm considering copying the

"system32" folder files from my installation media to my "C:\Windows\System32" folder except for some files

such as the "SAM" file plus that I have this new problem now when I try to run any troubleshooter

I ran it and it did not find any integrity violations, but as I said I considering a size comparison between my C

drive's "system32" folder and the one on the installation media and if there's a difference in size I will copy

the difference flles from my installation's media's "system32" folder to the one on my C drive, so do you think

that's a solution ?
