This is the original question with much details:


Short version - I see more NICs in ipconfig output than in device manager and network manager and Hyper-V virtual switch manager.

I want to make sure they deleted. Tried to remove one by GUID from registry but although GUID is gone it still shows in ipconfig after the reboot.

Please help to delete them cleanly

What is the point in doing this - you are more likely to break things doing regedits and you will not gain any performance or storage benefits, or even any cosmetic gain?
