Registry problem

In my registry, I have 4 identical folders:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Each one has different subfolders.  Is this normal?  If not, how do I fix it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi dvplayltd,

I checked it in my system. It's a Windows XP Professional. It's the same here too.
So, it definitely is *not* a problem!

Not that I know of.

Thanks for looking!

>If its not broken don't try to fix it:
Really good point!  Especially with the registry.  But we are talking about Windows here - when is it Not broken?

I noticed this while trying to resolve my issue with http:Q_21782313.html
