Exclamation Sometimes network driver is deleted

Lately, I have this problem. I have a red sign on the network icon and the pc cant connect to the internet and the network driver is missing. If I install the driver and restart the pc, then the driver is found and the pc can connect to the internet. If I shut down the pc and restart the red icon appears again and cant connect to the internet.
'What can the problem be?Hardware or a virus?
Any help is appreciated!

Could just be the port that is going bad. I had a similar problem where it would "sometimes" work. Do you see it in Device Manager after it goes "out"?
