Hi,

 

The easiest way to solve this may be to run Windows System Restore.  If you have Norton Internet Security installed, you will need to disable Nortons Tamper Protection as shown on the link below.

 

Norton Tamper Protection.

 

Once you've done this, shut down the PC.  Windows System Restore is usually best run in Safe Mode.  Tap away at f8 as you start the PC to enter Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode and hit enter.  When this has loaded, from the Start Menu, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools and launch System Restore.  Pick a restore point at least 24 hours before the LAN driver was deleted and then proceed with the restore process.  When complete, Windows will reboot as normal.

 

If the above fails to correct the issue, you can download the LAN driver installer using another PC from the link below and then copy it to the PC you need to install it on and double click it to start the installation.
