Is it causing an issue? You may wish to just ignore it.

Normally the hardware profiles are available in Advanced System Properties, Hardware Tab and see if the HW profile is there to delete.

Did you change the motherboard by any chance?  See this Microsoft article below:

Also, in a properly functioning machine Windows Vista and beyond, there are no hardware profiles. My comment above was in case something had gone wrong.
