Disable IPv6 Components on Windows vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the future of Internet and soon all the domains will switch to it. Many Governments OR ISP’s has already implemented IPv6 in their countries and reasons. All the Operating Systems which are coming in market by default supports IPv6. Microsoft WindowsVista, 7 and 2008 server editions also supports IPv6 but recently while working on one Windows 2008 Server I have faced many problems with DNS as IPv6 records where inserted in DNS zone. I have disabled IPv6 from Network properties but it didn’t helped.
After searching on Google and Microsoft website I found that to disable IPv6 components you have to make changes in Windows Registry i.e. you have to add new DWORD value DisabledComponents at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesTcpip6Parameters (Hard way.. isn’t it cause you have navigate to TCPip6 parameters). As I have to do it on 6 servers it was going to be a time consuming process so I have opened notepad


About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
