Random Network Adapters Appearing in device manager (Windows 7 x64)

yesterday i booted up my computer and when i logged in it would totally freeze halfway done loading all my startup programs. I finally got it logged in by logging in with the wifi switch off. but when i got on all my network adapters werent there i checked the device manager i had a bunch of new adapters but windows said it couldn't load any of them, i managed to get my wi fi and ethernet back by rolling back the drivers but my hamachi network adapter and a bunch of other ones still wont load. Any ideas?

Delete them all one by one and reboot the computer upon reboot the drivers for the devices will be automatically installed again.

I think a full anti-virus scan would not go amiss - Malwarebytes does a good job.
