Remove hidden NIC by regetry

 

一共要刪除 3 個地方, 分別是

"HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\ {4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\GUIDs"

It contains numerous subkeys that correspond to GUIDs of each network adapter on the system.

Each subkey should have another subkey, 'Connection'.

The value of the Name key is the name of the network adapter.

Besides, you also need to delete the same GUID key under the registry keys below:

"HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Adapters\GUIDs"

IpConfig -> Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\GUID

"HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\GUIDs"

After that, the network adapter would be deleted and that name would be freed up.
