WAN Miniport debacle.... Tickin me off

Looking at Networking Devices in Device Mgr, brings up (in addition to my wireless card which works fine) several "WAN Miniport" devices ( ie. WAN Miniport (ip), WAN Miniport (L2TP), WAN Miniport (PPTP), etc. ).

I've google'd it and what I've discovered is that they are probably related to setting up Remote Desktop on this system, which subsequently has been deactivated.

I can disable these, but if I try to uninstall them Windows tells me that it can't because "they might be needed to boot windows" - which is of course BS.

Before I take a 12gauge to this system, pls assist me in removing the [bleep] things...
