So that folder gets written without issues. Password still not remembered?

Goto network centre. Manage wireless networks. right click the wirelessnetwork with problems->properties.->Tab security. Make the password visible. post screenshot

in elevated command prompt

Code:
 
netsh  wlan  show  profiles
What is the name of faulty profile? Assume the name is MyHomeProf

Code:
netsh wlan show profiles name="MyHomeProf" key=clear
What do you see on the last line the secret password? It's not the password you entered?

I see 2 profiles. one upper case, and the same name lower case. why 2? using your commands, ONE profile has the right wireless password, the other one don't.
