    Are you talking about the VM's settings, or do you see the adapter in the guest OS although it doesn't exist in the VM's settings anymore?

    Which guest OS do you use?

    So what you are saying is that you delete the network adapter from the VM's hardware settings, and after rebooting the VM it's listed again? That's indeed unusual and the only reason that I can think of is that the VM is reverted to a snapshot!?

    The only idea that comes in mind is that there might be an issue with the ".vmx"/".vmx~" files (see http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2013/02/why-are-there-two-vmx-files.html), i.e. with properly updating the VM's configuration (.vmx file). However that's more guessing than knowing.
