2. Locate the following registry subkey:
3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters
4. In the details pane, click New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.
5. Type DisabledComponents, and then press ENTER.
6. Double-click DisabledComponents, and then type 0xffffffff in Hexadecimal or 4294967295 in Decimal.

Note The 0xffffffff value or the 4294967295 value disables all IPv6 components except for the IPv6 loopback interface.
