Cannot Delete Hidden NIC

I rearranged the internals of my pc and moved the network card from one pci
slot to another.

Everything works fine apart from the nic is now seen as NIC#2 and complains
when I try and assign the same IP address for it.

The first NIC entry does not show up in the network connections folder or
the device manager, and I would like to get rid of it so I know what's
happening.

I think it can be deleted in the registry but I have no idea what key it
would be.

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
Jude
