I have new Hyper-V network adapters showing up on my laptop. However, I never enable Hyper-V. Does anyone know how this happens or how to get rid of them? It seems to be affecting my network connection to my "normal" Ethernet, which show as "unplugged" Thank you!

Yes - it is part of the Windows Sandbox feature

the hyper-v adaptors are used when initiating Windows Sandbox.

 

Un-install Windows Sandbox and they go away.

 

Cheers,
