What is a virtual network adapter: that depends on what kind of environment you're working. Often it is to have virtual operating systems communicate with the host operating system.
This has nothing to do with VPNs however, which are encrypted bridge connections to have at least two separate local networks communicate together as if they were at the same location (for example: certain home workers can connect through a VPN connection with their office network and reach the local servers of the company as if they were actually connected to the network while being physically at the office).
And it also has little to do with the information that is tracked by a website when you visit it. If you would like to stay anonymous, you should look into using proxies (proxy servers), such as in the Tor project.

Facebook not open

Hi, I am Jedi Burrell I see you are having a problem with your browser. I have three solutions to fix this problem. Some may work but some are Guaranteed to work!
1(Maybe): Try Uninstalling chrome and re-installing it.
2(Probably): Try Firefox!
3(Garunteed): Just don't access
And If all of those fail besides 3 but you still want to access facebook look at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
hosts will block any website and windows sets up your host file. but you(Yes you! Awesome Right?) Can Change it! And If it says you can't right click it, click properties, and see if Read-Only Is checked if so UNCheck it!
Hope This Helps!

Can't access network folder after connect thru vpn

if you connect through vpn and your network folder is in your local network, you cannot access the network folder because you are virtually connected to an external network other than your local network. because of this you are actually trying to find your local network folder that is not present on that external network. you may need to disconnect your vpn before you access the network folder in your local network
