Recently, the network card built in to my motherboard was shot... so I had to buy myself a new network card. After I connected the network card set it all up, the connection for the old network card in my mother board was still set up.. and I want to remove it from My Network Connections and I want to get rid of the connectivity icon in the taskbar.. I have one in the taskbar which is crossed out (the motherboard one which I am not using), and the other one which is showing me that im connected (the new network card). i want to completely remove the old one off of my computer so it doesn't have that taskbar icon any more and so it doesn't show in my network connections...

i tried to uninstall the whole thing, and it went away... but then when i restart my computer, it just comes back... help!

Great you could solve it!.
Anyways, here is my suggestion for those who may have the same inquiry.

In Windows XP and Vista the only way i have found to do this is by disabling the network adapter. You do this by going to Control Panel -> Network.
Right click the network adapter that's unplugged and select Disable.

Hope that helps.
