Disable IPv6

Create a reg key from an elevated prompt:

reg add hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\tcpip6\parameters /v DisabledComponents /t REG_DWORD /d 255

Reboot, IPv6 is disabled. Your teredo, isatap, 6to4 interfaces are all gone.

To put it back how it was - just delete the key:

reg delete hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\tcpip6\parameters\ /v DisabledComponents /f


This doesn’t remove the IPv6 loopback - but it does keep from sending out any IPv6 on the interfaces.
