Hi there

If the VMware adapters aren't on your host PC then your VMWARE installation is hosed up - also ensure system services aren't preventing VMWARE services from starting at boot.

I'd totally UNINSTAL and re-install VMware again - you won't lose any Virtual Machines you've created.

Check also Firewalls, AV software etc.
