    I had connect problems and several times went to systems devices,
    uninstalled the wireless device, rebooted and allowed the system
    to find it again and reinstall it.

    As a result I have lots of entries for dead "wireless network connections"
    in the registry under this key

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    Can I safely just delete the old dead entries?

    This is a new computer, and I don't need tons of registry bloat if I can
    avoid it.

    If possible, first try to uninstall them by supported means:
    Boot in safe mode, run device manager, show hidden devices.
    By the way, when you uninstall a net adapter, these entries should be removed
    automatically. If they won't, probably the driver has serious problems.
