    I have setup my laptop to serve an AD HOC computer-to-computer network for
    temporary file sharing.

    Now I want to get rid of it and I can't figure out how!

    I setup a wireless network called "GRAPHICS" but I don't see any options to
    delete it!

    I've googled like crazy and all the answers I see are for deleting networks
    from Preffered Networks under Wireless Network Connection Properties... this
    is NOT what I need!! Even after deleting the network "GRAPHICS" from this
    list it still shows up under "Available wireless networks" and I want to get
    rid of it completely!

    If it shows up in "Available wireless networks" most likely what you're
    seeing is the *other* part of your ad hoc network. That is, you set up
    an ad hoc network between your computer and something else (another
    computer, a wireless printer, etc.). That other device is still making
    itself known by broadcasting its SSID. You'll have to re-configure that
    other device.

    Actually I figured it out...

    Its a ridiculous amount of lag between making a network setting change and
    that change actually propagating across the network setup. I had it deleted
    but it still showed up for over an hour...

    If you reboot the computer it might go away faster.
    In any case it is a Visual annoyance, and it does not effect performance.
