How To Reset Or Delete Network?


My computer won't connect to the internet right now. My router shows that the internet is connected, but my computer says there is a network connection problem.

I want windows to start over and create a new network. This is my problem.

If I right click on the network icon in the taskbar and open "Network & Sharing Center" it opens and I click on "Connect to a network" it opens a window in the taskbar giving me an option to open the network & sharing center?! Which just starts the cycle over again.

I wan't to be able to see the network that windows has set up and delete it or create a new one but can't seem to figure it out. Windows 7 is too user friendly now that I can't find any of the advanced controls?

How To Reset Network
Brand new PC with Windows 7/32 pro SP1 on with following spec (Gigabute motherboard h55m-usb3, Intel I5 750 3.6 GHz cpu; 4gb Crucial RAM; Samsung 500GB Hdd; Samsung S223 DVDrw; OCZ 600w psu; Silverstone FP34 card reader. AVG 2011 free AV. BT ISP, connected via ethernet cable to Netgear router. No problems installing Windows 7/32, and installing Adobe, AVG, and Win 7 SP1 initiallyDate on PC is correct. This is a wired network using the onboard nic. Started off by seeing security certificate errors. When trying a different router saw in the network and sharing centre that there was no connection to the internet, however strange as it seems I was connected and could do limited surfing, but couldn't for example download Itunes. I then noticed that the network was defined as public. No other PCs on the network now, but XP laptops have been able to connect to the net okayI have been able to change this to work, but PC now won't see the router - when I enter ipconfig, I do not have any connectivity at all.

I have also tried using the netsh command to reset int ip and winsock which were okay but still no joy. Maybe I need to undertake things in a different orderperhaps while not connected? I would really like to go back to starters amd start over, but while on wireless one can do this, there appears no easy way to reset the wired network settings back to original

How To Reset Wireless Network Preferences
I am connected on a hotel's network at which I am staying. When I connected I opted to use the basic free connection type. Essentially I learned the speed is too slow and I should have choose to upgrade my wireless option to the quicker paid version. I have removed all settings from my browser, Chrome. I disconnected my wireless on my laptop and restarted windows. I can't figure out how to reset and have the option to upgrade wireless speed. I can go to the page but it just says you are connected no options to upgrade. I just need to reset my options.

How To Delete One And Only Network Connection
I am doing some troubleshooting and I want to completely remove my network connection. I remember with Windows XP when I did this, it would re-detect the network card and reload the drivers and settings after I rebooted.

I can disable the connection but not delete. How do I remove the connection in Windows 7 x64?

Cannot Delete Network Profile
I have a Lenovo T61 that I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate from Vista Ultimate. Wireless networking works fine except for one profile that was used in Vista. When I try to connect to that particular site, the network attempts connect but always fail. The network trys to connect to a profile that was previously used in this situation, however the properties indicate Windows Vista. I believe if I could delete the profile, a new one would be created and connection could be made.

The problem is: I cannot delete the profile. I cannot locate it on the system. The only time it appears is when trying to connect to this particular site. A text file is generated when I use the troubleshooter. Read more at the forum...

Cannot Delete A Network Folder?
I installed a program and then uninstalled it. However, I noticed there's a stupid shared network folder in my main "NAME-PC" network. How do I remove this? I would like to remove the "sbp" folder, but there is no "delete" option. No matter what I do, this folder cannot be deleted and is here to stay....even if I try to mess around with the sharing options. I am logged in as an administrator as well. I understand that my "Users" folder is the main one that I would like to keep, but I cannot get rid the other folder

Delete Wireless Network Profiles?
I have the home edition. I'm trying to delete a "ZTE Proprietary USB Modem" profile. I've removed the program through device manager and it's gone, but it still shows up when I click on "connect to a network". My adhoc network is also there. How do I get rid of both of them. I'd like to start with a clean slate to get my Ad hoc network going. I've tried the "Manage Wireless Networks" but they don't show up there.

Delete Unwanted Network Settings?
I've just installed a new draft N wifi router to replace my previous B/G router. Perhaps foolishly, I kept the same name for my home network. My new Acer TravelMate, which has draft N capability, was happy (but slow) on the old system and works OK when I connect it to the new router by ethernet. However when I to connect it via wifi it says "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network".

Can't Delete AD HOC Network?
I recently created an ad hoc network to share the internet connection with my laptop.I've now stopped using it but cannot seem to delete it. It still shows on the list of available networks on my pc and network. I didnt save the network so it doesnt show in the list when i click "manage wirless networks".It goes if i remove my wireless usb dongle but then reappears when i plug it back it. Also it's still there after a restart. Is there anyway i can get rid of it? Maybe a command prompt to clear network history or something?

How Do You Delete A Wifi Network Created In Connectify ?
Recently, I was trying to use Connectify to set up a wi-fi network using my Ethernet connection named " Win 7 Wi-Fi". However, it did not work out. Therefore, I tried it again, using the same network name as my first attempt. This second attempt was successful. However, now I have a wi-fi network named "Win 7 Wi-Fi 2".

I think this happened because the first network I tried to setup, was created, but never deleted. Is there a way to delete the first one which didn't work, so my "Win 7 Wi-Fi 2" will just become "Win 7 Wi-Fi"? I remember being able to delete a wireless network using the command prompt, but I forgot how to do it.

Delete Many Duplicate Virtual Network Adapters?
I have over 50 virtual networking adapters in device manager, I have posted this question in many forums, and still cannot get rid of these pesky unused extra adapters. I know they have been created by using Virtualbox, and by creating many virtual machines and updating virtualbox. Unfortunately, I have tried uninstalling virtualbox and the drivers all remain in devicemanager. DeviceMgmt also does not allow me to uninstall or delete the adapters, (When I do they just stay there, even after rebooting.)I most likely have to go into the registry and delete them, but they are in so many different places there, I need to know the correct place to delete them. I have a bet that this is the forum where I will get the answer for this even though I have posted in virtualbox forums, technet, MSDN, superuser, serverfault, and stackoverflow.

Explorer.exe Crash When Trying To Delete Network Location
Okay so I just tried to add a new network location in the My Computer.

I set the network address as \MYLAPTOP but the program didn't let me do that because I need to specify a folder. I don't want to specify a folder because I just want to use the root folder. So I then typed it as \MYLAPTOP\ with an extra slash at the end. The shortcut was made but it didn't work so I tried to remove it.

Now every time I press "delete" on the shortcut Explorer.exe crashes and restarts. I tried this in safe mode with and without internet access but it always crashed.

Now I'm just looking for a way to manually delete the icon through registry or some other editor.

To Reset The Computer To Factory Reset
I had to reset my computer to factory settings a while back. I've done nothing to it except download advanced system optimizer and windows antivirus. This was a miracle alone due to the fact that my Computer locks up for extensive periods of time and will barely ever finish a task; such as transferring a picture to USB drive, scan, or any click command. It has never done this before the reset.

Change WEP Key For Saved Network (or Delete And Reconnect)?
I have a wireless LAN sharing internet through a Mac Book Pro, i have no problems connecting to this with Ubuntu, an android phone, and other Apple products. The only system that i'm having problems with is the windows partition....The network is listed in available connections, but seems to have the wrong WEP key because it fails to connect. However I cannot delete the connection and start again as the network is not listed in 'Manage Wireless Networks'.

I'm stuck!! I cannot scan for updates because even when the notebook is plugged directly into the router it will not connect to the internet. I can just about get onto my neighbours WiFi network, but it is very poor strength and cuts out, so can't really use that. I know the hardware in the computer is fine because the Ubuntu partition works.

How To Do Factory Reset
im trying to factory reset my computer because i'm just tired of having a full HD, and random software from years ago. Anyways, my current OS is Windows 7 and I have an Alienware m15x. Now i've read up on a few ways to restore this specific computer, however, I don't have the installation disc, AlienRespawn/DellDataSafe does not appear when press f8 at boot menu, and i don't have a factory system image to recover from apparently. So with this being said, Is there anyway to factory reset? I have a bootable USB drive with windows 7 recovery on it, but I need a system image or something I believe. I've also tried download AlienRespawn Win 7 patch off of alienware.com but when I try to use it it says "Change.MBR failed"

Windows 7 Reset Itself
when I booted up my computer, it said 'Please wait.. Configuring your desktop'.And when it loaded up, everything on the computer was reset. Fortunately, after looking everywhere, I found everything (My documents, pictures, music, videos, etc). But if I go to the start menu, and click on a program, instead of opening it, it starts installing it. On the pics, as you can see, there were some programs on the desktop. But when I clicked on it, it started installing it. Also, as you can see, the Documents, Pictures, Music folder has been reset.

Reset OS To When It Was First Installed?
I have a Inspiron 1545 Dell that came with Windows Vista at first, but then I put in Windows 7 Ultimate and got rid of the Windows Vista Partition. What I want to do now is to put Windows 7 Ultimate back to when I first installed it, as in have it to where I just got done installing Windows 7 Ultimate. Is there a way I can reset the computer to where I will not need the CD or the serial key to do this, because I no longer have possession of the CD or key. I do not have System Restore points at that time or any backup of that time either. If I reset it will it reset to Vista? I do not want to go back to Vista I want to be able to keep Windows 7.
