    I have discovered that in device manager 6to4 adapter is listed several
    times. After I delete the duplicates, they accumulate again in the course of
    time. Does anybody know the reason ?

    Go here:

    Type in "device manager" in the search field.

    Dropdown options menu should appear.

    Type in further key word(s) pertaining to area of interest.

    Select relevent option.

    put it on one of the image hosting sites (like ) ,
    and post a link here.

    Hi Jack,

    yesterday I have disabled IPv6 support through the registry
    DisabledComponents=dword:00000011) and deleted all aforementioned 6TO4
    entries in the device manager (deleted two isatap entries as well)

    In the device manager network adapters group I have now the following
    entries only:

    Intel(R) 82562V-2 10/100 Network Connection
    WAN Miniport (SSTP)
    WAN Miniport (IP)
    WAN Miniport (IPv6)
    WAN Miniport (L2TP)
    WAN Miniport (Network Monitor)
    WAN Miniport (PPPOE)
    WAN Miniport (PPTP)

    It is kind of solution as long as I don't need to use IPv6, but it is atill
    Some three weeks have passed since I have cleaned up 6TO4 entries the last
    time (I had some 20), yesterday I had 6 or 7.
