Windows 7: Hidden Networks connection

Hidden Networks connection

Basically, I followed all the steps in connecting to a hidden network. However, I accidentally entered the wrong encryption type. Then, after I had realized my stupid mistake, I tried to re-do the process with the correct information. The error message I receive is: Network already exists. But I can't access that network or the already existing settings anywhere. Is there any way to solve this?

Thanks!

Try Network and Sharing Center - Manage Wireless Networks and see if it is in the list
