I've uninstalled something on my laptop by mistake and can no longer access the Internet

HP Recommended

I don't know what I deleted, I was aiming to uninstall some video editing software I no longer use but I wasn't fully paying attention and I've uninstalled something else instead - I honestly have know idea what. I can no longer access the Internet and there is no option to connect to a wireless network anywhere. There's not even any WiFi settings in the control panel, everything has just gone. When I run diagnostic tests it just tells me to plug into an ethernet cable but I do not have one. I can't go to a library or anything because of the lockdown but I am supposed to be working from home and I cannot access the Internet from my laptop at all and I just have no idea what to do. Please please help me - I'm in full panic mode
