    I see thread was closed on this issue. I backed up my registry by "regedit-export-filename.reg", I then typed into regedit "find my 3 old networks 1 at a time, find next, etc. work way thru entire registry"
    I deleted everyone, some were just keys and no ref to the Network/DELETE.......I was brave/angry more like it as you all show your frustration, I share it.

    It is stable, no issues so far..... no issues with chgs to registry........I did 3 return to purchase config's just to get from Windows 7 Ultimate to Win 8 Pro........."path not found".........6 levels escalation in MS Tech Support got me a friend and great knowledge...........very kind helpful, have to escalate 5 at least though.....

    IT WORKED for me on the list that comes up for "available networks to connect to", now if you want to also clean them out inside Windows network in control panel, what a previous poster said worked for me, that being click on network you want to delete, go to top left, get menu dropdown and delete is an option...............that is just Windows 8 Pro though.

    After all that I set a Kindle Fire up and I see all of them "ARGGGGG", but, there is a slide and delete deal there to get rid of them on that, did by mistake so not positive on how to do on Kindle Fire but it can be done.

    Hope helps you too, let me know,
