What is Intel(R) Network Connections Driver and can I delete it.

My personal toshiba laptop (Windows 10 pro) is running out of disk space and there is the above application that is listed as 12.6GB. I read that I could uninstall this program but when I try to do that, it asks me to confirm the uninstall and then comes back with the following question:

Do you want to remove drivers for all wired Intel Network Connections? When I enter Yes, nothing happens and the software is not removed.

So, my question is, do I need this software and if not, why can't I uninstall it. And how do I overcome this problem?

Hello rossie,

 

 

The Intel(R) Network Connections software manages your Ethernet Network Controller (Wired Ethernet Connection) drivers.

 

 

If you don't regularly connect your laptop to the internet using a cable, your computer should be OK with the generic driver that Windows* will automatically install once you remove the software. For more information we can recommend engaging our team over at the /community/tech/wired/content Wired Ethernet Support Community, or your computer manufacturer.

We hope this information helps.

 

 

Best regards,
