Windows 7: NativeWIFIDefaultProfile

How do you delete the NativeWIFIDefaultProfile?

Hey there, either Petey7 or TheAudioAnalyst, I have the exact same problem as do hundreds of other Windows/Netgear users from what I can tell on the web.

I was getting excited that this forum claims it SOLVED the problem but there's no clear answer listed.

Please please define how you delete the NativeWIFIDefault Profile, as TheAudioAnalyst did before rebooting.

I'll try anything. Help please.

First off, all NEETGEAR software must be uninstalled. Before doing so, I went into Windows 7 Network panel and moved Netgear down so it wasn't primary and deleted it again.

Then editting the registry, I found all entries to the Netgear usb device and deleted them. Note that all can not be deleted because Win 7 will not let you, search by Netgear, the usb model name and Native... . I also then ran Registry Mechanic whci found some entries that were hidden - not named so they could be readily found. I also deleted the Netgear folder(s) on the C Drive - depends on the version of software and the version of the uninstall that you have if anything is left. But I deleted them all. Then I re booted. Then I ran Registry Mechanic once more and defrag'd the C Drive and rebooted. It was now gone.

When I deleted it as I stated above in an earlier post, two or three re boots later it came back. The above procedure will remove it once and for all. And it doesn't take that long really. Remember that editting the Registry can be tricky and you can destroy your computer so I would recommend making a backup copy before you start the edit procedure. I am sorry to take so lionto reply, let me know if you need any other help. Thanks!
