    VPN Connection with no name. Cannot remove it from system


    Hello,

    I have a VPN connection that was created, but somehow has no name to it, and I cannot remove it. I am running WIN 8.1 64BIT on a Dell E7240.


    I have tried to remove it from the Windows 8 interface, I have also tried removing it from Network and Sharing Center. I am lost at this point as to how to remove this connection. Screen shot below for more information:


    Any help would be great, I'm happy to go into regedit to fix this, just not sure of where to look?

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    you say you tried to remove it from the win8 interface ,not quite sure what that refers to ,
    but did you try this route, open charms bar, go to pc settings ,in the next screen open network, and see if its there to remove it

    thats the best i can do ,i have searched but cant find any answers to what to do if it will not delete
