I remember when I installed Virtual WiFi in my laptop I got this Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter. This was stubburn to be removed and I once even reinstalled the Operating System. But this time I didn't realised when it got through to the laptop. When it resides I have problem with my Wifi. It does not connect properly or it does not show my wifi AP and also it did not connect to the new Wifi AP only the old APs were able to connect. So I had disabled the Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter from the Network Connections (control panel >> ncpa.cpl). But one with the same problem came and even with disabling this from the network connections I cannot get through. Therefore I had google again and find its solution. Lucky enough I got it in one of the website and worked. http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/155404-right-way-disable-microsoft-virtual-wifi-miniport-adapter.html
I am even going to try this in my laptop. Hope it works in mine too. Yes it worked too and this Microsoft Virtual Miniport adapter vanished from the network connections of control panel.
Running cmd as an administrator and the following commands were issued
"netsh wlan stop hostednetwork"
"netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow"
