Vista, Dial up, and IPV6

So my friend brought her laptop over for me to look at. She is on a cheap
dial up plan and she is happy with that. I do an ipconfig /all and see 438
interfaces!
438! 6to4 adapters!
So I disable ipv6 with regedit, load up this useful tool,
<http://www.pro-it-education.de/software/deviceremover/>
and spend a while selecting and deleting tons of teredo and 6to4 virtual
NICs she would never need. Lo and behold, her laptop is actually usable!
She says it is so fast now, haha

Thanks, I had no idea it would do that, darn Vista. She has really noticed
the difference too. Must have been building a new interface for each new
IP. She used to have to try 2-3 times before the dial up would actually
link up properly. It is now, one click, boom.

You probably reduced her computer stress level considerably. : )
