    To manually turn the Hosted Network off, enter the following into an elevated command prompt:

    Code:
    netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
    You can also disable the Msoft virtual WiFi adaptor in Device Manager by going to the View tab then enabling "show hidden devices" you can then right click the virtual adaptor to disable as shown in the pictures.

    You need to also go into the registry and delete any entries from it. See Delete Wireless Network Profiles in Windows 8(.1) - Microsoft Community Also some good information at http://www.thesysadminhimself.com/20...windows-8.html

    Do a "netsh wlan show all" in a Command window as Administrator, and you will pull all of the wifi profiles on your machine.
