        Ethernet adapter properties used to look something like this:

        A client called about a problem with her laptop earlier today because of a Wi-Fi connection problem.  When she looked at her Ethernet adapter properties she thought she had been hacked because it didn’t look like this. I checked my machine as a basis – and also got freaked out – because it now looks like the attached jpg.

        So I’m wondering: What happened here?

        Was it a recent monthly Microsoft update that messed this up?

        If so, which one?

        Which version of Windows 10?  I have all recent updates applied for Windows 10 2004, and my ethernet properties are the same as ever, similar to your first picture.  There is certainly no item with @%SystemRoot%.

        That’s on my ethernet-connected desktop, don’t know about wifi.

        Windows 10 Pro 64 bit 2004
