  1. Click Start -> RUN , type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit.exe in the Programs list.

  2. In the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.

  4. Double-click DisabledComponents to modify the DisabledComponents entry.

    Note If the DisabledComponents entry is unavailable, you must create it. To do this, follow these steps:

    2. Type DisabledComponents, and then press ENTER.
    3. Double-click DisabledComponents.

    1. Type 0 to enable all IPv6 components. (Windows default setting)
    2. Type 0xffffffff to disable all IPv6 components, except the IPv6 loopback interface. This value also configures Windows Vista to use Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) instead of IPv6 in prefix policies.
    3. Type 0x20 to use IPv4 instead of IPv6 in prefix policies.
    4. Type 0x10 to disable native IPv6 interfaces.
