    Yes I saw the link but my question was it seemed to be about deleting all of my networks and not just the Guest2 one?

    Option 1 did not work - trying 2 now.

    Option 2 was confusing as my command prompt window did not show "Guest2" specifically as in the screen shot I posted above.

    In that case, you won't be able to remove Guest2 from the wireless network list since it's just someone's wireless network that's within range of your PC.

    Now I am confused. So let me get this straight. The image I am posting here is nothing to do with my wireless Guest2 account? So if Also, are you sure the Guest2 account is someone else's like my neighbors?

    Also why is it called Guest2? If it is another wireless network in the area?Click image for larger version

    Correct. That screenshot has absolutely nothing to do with your wireless networks. Instead, that screenshot is for your "user accounts" as it says at the top of that window.

    Since "Guest2" it not listed as one of your wireless network profiles (OPTION TWO), it would be someone's wireless network in your nearby area that your wireless adapter has detected and listed for you. "Guest2" is just the name that whomever the wireless belongs to named it. It shows up for you since they have chosen to broadcast their wireless network instead of having it as a hidden network.

    That's still well within range of a wireless signal.

    It depends on their wireless network, but it yeah it could be.

    Is "Guest2" still there when your daughter is not visiting? If so, then it wouldn't be her. Plus, she would have to setup a wireless ad hoc to be able to see it on your PC like that.

    You could try deleting your Marina Hotel guest wireless profile using the command below if you don't want it to see what's left.
