    how to clear out ALL NIC devices, registry info, and start clean?

    luttca

      My desktop has both an onboard Intel 82556DM-2 and an Intel Pro/1000 MT NIC.  I'm using the Pro/1000 MT to VLAN to multiple networks.  At some point it had problems (the VLANned NICs stopped working and showed up in Network Properties as Pro/1000 GT!).

       

      I need to know how to clear out ALL the NIC devices that my PC knows about (including stranded virtual nics) and the registry information, so that I can start clean WITHOUT reinstalling Windows (2008 Server, btw).  Can anyone help?
