Windows 7: Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

THANK YOU!!!!

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles\{GUID}\ProfileName

THAT is the registry key I've been looking for! Every time I travel and connect to a new network, it increments that number... again... for a network I'm only going to use once. I've wanted to reset those numbers (I'm up to more than 20, now) forever. Now that I know where it is, I'm going to write a batch file to kill all the ones named "Network #" (i.e., any network names that have a number after the word "Network").

Blessed be!

Home Network, Public Network & Dial-Up
Dumb question here: I have just one computer. When I connect to the internet via dial-up, my computer says I'm part of a network and it wants me to choose between Public Network and Home Network. I'm assuming the "network" detected is my dial-up connection and that I should choose "Public...
