Problem with 'Identifying Networks' when starting PC

Hi
This is a new problem I have and am not sure how to proceed. I have Window 8.1 installed and an Ethernet connection from my fibre router to my PC. (My smart TV access's the router also) .

When starting the PC I have no internet connection for around three minutes whilst the Networks are being located ?? Please see image link which explains. All I used to have is "Network 3 - Internet Access" - now I also have "Unidentified Network - No internet access" shown in the system tray. Any ideas how to resolve this issue?

Possibly something to do with OpenVPN going wrong as per: https://airvpn.org/topic/9645-openvpn-tap-windows-81-adapter-problem/ ?

Solved!! I went to Device Manager & uninstalled all TAP Win32 entries which were related to the VPN software I previously had installed.
