should be under the network connections.

Find your NIC card -> properties.

Uncheck IPV6.  (same way you would configure the IPv4 address, just uncheck the ipv6).  It's then disabled.

You need to follow what ged325 said and I usually make a registry mod:

I added a registry key:  
   
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\DisabledComponents  
   
With 0xff
