You mean de-select it? It is still not allowing to uninstall it

There isn't an 'uninstall' for TCP/IP, to remove it you have to do some reg modifications...

Have you seen this link? -

That should do what you want, or is there another reason you are trying to uninstall it?

Oh ok, so the link I provided doesn't help?
Similar one here on EE itself -

Can you try those steps? Or have you already done that and still issues?

The TCP/IP settings are under a NIC's properties. Just remove the NIC from your device manager and re-install it again.
