On a Windows 10, version 1803-based, Windows 10, version 1809-based, or Windows 10, version 1903-based device or computer, you can't uninstall the Client for Microsoft Networks or other network components. You receive the following error message:
Could not uninstall the Client for Microsoft Networks feature.
The error is 0x80071779.
This behavior is by design.
Microsoft does not support using this GUI or netcfg to uninstall protocols or built-in drivers. Instead, you can unbind the driver from Network Adapters either by using this GUI or the PowerShell cmdlet "Disable-NetAdapterBinding." This is effectively the same as uninstalling the driver.
