Basically, this: How to remove all the vEthernet (Default Switch) once and for all?
Except, I removed hyperV and the Containers feature, and all that happened was that the NIC reported as disabled. But it was still there. Then I reinstalled hyperV and it created a second one. Removing HyperV disabled, but did not remove the second one.
I removed it from the registry manually (see third post here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/7f18af6f-4f6b-40ac-94bc-4be32e850fb1/vethernet-default-switch?forum=win10itpronetworking) and that made exactly no difference.
So my question is, short of resetting my laptop, how can I make this stupid thing go away? It's screwing up my networking (auto-switch between WiFi and Ethernet doesn't work anymore)
Edit: for clarification, my end goal, here, is to have (a) Hyper-V removed (uninstalled) and (b) remove the (now unnecessary and unwanted) Hyper-V switches that remained after Hyper-V was uninstalled.
