ipconfig = 65 local area connections Windows7

So on my laptop, windows 7, when I do an ipconfig, I get 65  'Tunnel adapter local area connection' it just keeps going up. How do i get rid of these? I have found other posts, like going into 'network places' going to properties of the connection and removing IPv6 but that feature is greyed out. Also found a registry setting to disable it, but that whole section was not in my registry. (might have been a Vista reg setting, not in Windows7? Any thoughts on how to stop it generating more? Or clear it? Or what started it? Been using this laptop for a long time, I rebuild it often, but haven't run into this before. Thanks for any thoughts!

Can you post a screenshot?

You should be able to simply uncheck TCPIP V6....

Johnb6767...... Check box.... CHECK BOX!!!  Wow... I tried highlighting IPv6 and goto uninstall. But all you had to do was click the check box :)  Anyway, didn't actually fix anything, but now I know there are check boxes right there....

Centerv's link worked for me. I had found a similar post but the settings weren't there and I didn't feel adventurous.  These instructions said to go ahead and create them if they didn't exist. So i did and it worked perfectly. Thanks!
