How's this for weird

My internet suddenly disconnected, scratched head, did checks through windows troubleshooter, none found. Then I found that the network card has been disabled by windows, it would not let me repair install/new/delete install, had to go through safe mode to delete drivers, rebooted, reinstalled drivers problem fixed. No idea why.
