I was testing Windscribe and Tunnelbear VPN software, uninstalled both and now PC randomly can't connect to the internet. It'll work fine for hours/whole day and then randomly can't connect to the internet, if I restart the pc(Win 10 Pro) the internet work's fine again.

I noticed after being uninstalled that Tunnelbear left behind it's virtual LAN device in the network devices list which I right-click uninstalled.

I'm assuming one of these 2 left behind some reg setting or network protocol that's tripping every so often?

uninstall all network adaptors in device manager, restart PC.
It will then reload the network adaptors which are needed once PC restarted.
