I physically took out a wireless nic I was trying out but it keeps listing in Device Manager (Windows 7).
I've tried uninstalling it and using restore point, the latter got rid of the icon in systray, but it still lists.

Anyone know of steps short of delving into the registry that would kill this?



Thanks in advance,

Mac

If I understand your issue, this is the resolution:

Method 1



  1. Use one of the following methods to go to a command prompt:
    • In Windows 8 or in Windows Server 2012, use the Search charm to search for cmd, and then tap or click Command Prompt.
    • In earlier versions of Windows, click Start, click Run, type cmd.exe, and then press Enter.
  2. Type set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1, and then press Enter.
  3. Type Start DEVMGMT.MSC, and then press Enter.
  4. Click View, and then click Show Hidden Devices.
  5. Expand the Network Adapters tree.
  6. Right-click the dimmed network adapter, and then click Uninstall.
