You could uncheck the option for the network connection

Start >run > ncpa.cpl ->Right-click connection > Properties > Networking (tab)

You can't uninstall it from Vista. It is integral to the operating system.In a year or so you will be happy that it's implementation is built-in.

Vista is really the equivalent of 'a Nanny State' when it wont let you mess around and remove what you want. - its like things are 'forced' onto users whether they like it or not.

Thanks,

Were you forced into buying your copy?

Yes someone held a gun to my head :-) - its not the point whether I was forced or not. What other alternative have you got out there as an OS apart from Linux? -

Vita uses IPV6 for several utilities including Windows Meeting Space and local connectivity. Keep in mind that more and more sites will be using 6 vice 4 to provide adequate addresses. It is not a Microsoft "thing" but a network standard.

Very nice and all that but my issue is that they never built into this OS that the end user can uninstall it if they want to ( not to my
knowledge).

Seeing as how it is a coming, irrevocable standard that everyone will use,why would *anyone* want to "uninstall" it. That would be so foolish. You may need it for that web site next week.

Why remove ipv6, there is very good reasons for it being there, namely that ipv4 has a limited life.

yes, but I think it will still be around for some time yet before IPV6 takes over.

Re: uninstalling ipv6 in Vista? Why in the world would you need to touch it?

As often is the case for a while I don't see the OP--maybe it's Andy, but I
have a question and hi who ever you are OP on this thread:

***What in the world is your rationale for wanting to "remove IPV6" or even
touching it, when it is is mainly for use large corporate networks and IPV4
is the currently used networking scheme by Vista deploying a 4-byte
addressing scheme?***

I want to start collecting questions here on how to do what never needs to
be touched.
