Please REMOVE wlanext.exe

Please REMOVE wlanext.exe

I had been disturbed by the high CPU usage of wlanext.exe for nearly two years, just like many other users with the same problem.

This program keeps starting and running when Windows starts, even I disabled WiFi module.

So a few days ago I DELETED wlanext.exe in C:\Windows\System32 (with restore point), and it turned out that Windows runs NORMALLY without this annoying program! Since then I never have any mistake on WiFi or any. 

I think wlanext.exe does nothing but takes 25% of CPU. :-)

Therefore, please REMOVE wlanext.exe! 

Windows Version: Windows 10 Pro 1709 (Build 16299.3xx → 16299.402)

I agree. I have been researching but as of yet do not understand what this is for and why it is running. There also seems to be no help from Microsoft as to what to do about it. 

EXPLAIN EXACTLY WHAT THIS SERVICE IS AND WHAT IT IS FOR OR REMOVE IT FROM THE OPERATING SYSTEM.
