Does anyone know the function and origin of the wireless profile, bungle4?

I've been cleaning up my numerous vbScript files and when I tidied, then tested Metered.vbs, it produced the following:

D:\>metered

Profiles on interface Wi-Fi:
    All User Profile     : bungle4
    All User Profile     : mynet

Metered.vbs is a script I wrote that runs netsh to enable/disable the metered connection status on my wireless so that Windows Update will (hopefully) not download massive updates when I am at the cottage on a connection with a small data cap. When run without parameters it just lists the wireless profiles. I was very surprised to see bungle4 and my Google searches so far have proven fruitless. The output below may shed some light and I am hoping someone out there will be able to explain what bungle4 is an how it might have appeared on my computer.

My wireless devices are:

five laptops
one Chromecast

It is possible that Chromecase uses this rediculously named entry but I would like to verify this is the case. Below is the output from netsh wlan show all in three parts with the bungle4 piece separated.

Just tried the netsh wlan showall here and under profiles is a profile for each WiFi hotspot I have connected to.
The profile name matched exactly our hotspot SSIDs.

0

When I click on the wireless tool in the taskbar I see 8 hotspots including my own (mynet) . I do NOT see bungle4. And I only have netsh profiles for two: mynet and bungle4. I have no idea what bungle4 is or when it showed up. If I had to (and I really don't want to) I could restore system images all the way back to when I rebuilt my system last october and repeat the netsh query. That would be very time-consuming.

Sorry but I didn't do a deep dive into this area but can confirm I get a profile for every WiFi connection made. Now that Windows is often set to auto-connect to open hot spots, all it would take is to power up near some open hot spot.

Since it's a profile you don't use, I'd delete it and forgo the forensics.

It's deleted

netsh wlan delete profile name=bungle4

I take daily images so if anything stops working I can always go back.
