How to completely purge a WLAN network profile in Windows 10?

How do I completely remove a WLAN network profile in Windows 10?

I’ve tried the following:

  • Remove the profile from the list of known networks in Windows 10 settings
  • Remove the profile using netsh wlan delete profile name=""
  • Remove the profile by searching the registry for the SSID and deleting all the subkeys containing that string

However, none of these methods seems to have done the job.

I have the strangest issue where Windows 10 has decided it hates my SSID in particular, and will not connect to the network unless I change the SSID. When I do change the SSID, I can connect just fine.

I’ve tested this over and over, and the connection between the SSID and Windows 10 refusing to connect seems reliable, if scarcely believable. I’ve spent the day troubleshooting my network connection, and only found this out when I was nearly at my wits’ end.

It appears at least one other user has had a similar issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
