The Microsoft Virtual Wi-Fi Miniport is a virtual network adaptor that functions alongside your computer's physical network adaptor, enabling your PC to connect to more than one network at a time. If you do not use the virtual Wi-Fi service, however, or if the Miniport adaptor is interfering with your network connections, you can uninstall the adaptor from the computer and disable the virtual Wi-Fi service.
