Default Annoying Problem

hi everyone, heres my problem....when i type ipconfig , i get what i want; however, i also get 96 "tunnel adapter local area connection 96"

yes 96 of them....so what this means is i cant view my default gateway or important information because i have to scroll all the way up to view it but i cant scroll up anymore past tunnel adapter 38

i tried disabling ipv6 but that still doesnt make this pest go away...any way to remove the tunnel adapters or to have the "ipconfig" command display page by page would be nice instead of dumping all the info to the current page would be appreciated..

Q. How do I disable IPv6 in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008?

A. Unlike Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, IPv6 in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 cannot be uninstalled. However, you can disable IPv6 in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 by doing one of the following:

* In the Network Connections folder, obtain properties on all of your connections and adapters and clear the check box next to the Internet Protocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6) component in the list under This connection uses the following items.

This method disables IPv6 on your LAN interfaces and connections, but does not disable IPv6 on tunnel interfaces or the IPv6 loopback interface.
* Add the following registry value (DWORD type) set to 0xFFFFFFFF:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip6\Parameters\DisabledComponents

This method disables IPv6 on all your LAN interfaces, connections, and tunnel interfaces but does not disable the IPv6 loopback interface. You must restart the computer for this registry value to take effect.

If you disable IPv6, you will not be able to use Windows Meeting Space or any application that relies on the Windows Peer-to-Peer Networking platform or the Teredo transition technology.
