Lost network connectivity uninstalling Endpoint VPN

We had a machine update to Windows 10 x64 1709, and it would pop up a warning the currently installed version of Endpoint VPN was not compatible.

 

I uninstalled Endpoint Client, but on the next reboot, I was unable to connect to any network, wired or wireless.

If I typed IPCONFIG, nothing is shown at all. IPCONFIG /ALL lists no adapters, just lists Host Name, Node Type, but not much else.

 

I tried using Windows 10 network reset option, but no luck. I also tried various netsh commands for resetting the network stack

 

The only option was to use System Restore to go back to an earlier point before Check Point Endpoint Security VPN client was installed.

 

I'm not sure of the version, but according to Apps and Features, it's 98.60.1031

 

How can I uninstall Endpoint VPN without breaking the network stack?
