AnchorFree Tap-Windows-Adapter V9

Post by LeeBaron » Tue, 09 Apr 2019, 13:30


OS: W10 1809
Panda Free 18.06.01

I uninstalled Panda free, and after that I could not start any office programms. It mady my Office 2010 to recocnize a Hardware change.

I installed my backup image of my HD and evey thing was working again.
Then I found it was the AnchorFree Tap-Windows-Adapter V9 that was uninstalled when uninstalling Panda
So I verified it by marking AnchorFree Tap-Windows-Adapter V9 as deactivated. Again Office lost its registration

How can a not present virtutal Network Adapter cause a 'Hardware Change' ?

How can I uninstall Panda but keep AnchorFree Tap-Windows-Adapter V9?

that is the virtual adapter we use for the VPN.
So there is not a scenario in which you will leave one uninstalling the other, they go hand in hand.
But there is no sense at all having your office not working because a hardware change.
What would happend if you add a hard disk or you change your physical network card?

try the uninstaller:

then restar the machine twice, one after another.
Then try the office, try the internet connection.
Specify which one does work and which one does not.
