Disable VEthernet adapters permanently on Windows 10

Greetings wise wizards of EE:

I'm helping a friend who shares Quickbooks as the host with one other computer. For reasons unknown, her machine keeps connecting to the network via a "VEthernet" adapter in the Network Adapter settings. Once I remove/disable them, her IP address changes back to normal.

However, they keep re-asserting themselves. I have tried disabling/uninstalling them in both the Device Manager and in Network Adapter settings, and they keep coming back. I don't even know they are used for, but they are annoying as hell. I want them gone forever.

I've also looked in the Windows 10 Features and "Hyper V" is NOT checked. I've checked it and unchecked it just in case that would jar them loose.

Please help me eliminate them with extreme prejudice.

Many thanks in advance,

Windows OSNetworking
