You don't actually have 5 nics, what you are seeing are 5 different connections that were made. When ever you delete/reinstall a network connection Windows shows a new connection, you can delete them and even rename them if you want.

Those are the Microsoft Wi-Fi Miniport.
If you have no use for them, you may disable them by typing this command, make sure to do an elevated command then type netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow press enter after.
