You cannot uninstall IPv6. You can only disable it. Follow this article for that and disable IPv6 in registry

Hi bevhost:

I don't want to have ipv6 traffic in my network.
The problem is also the teredo traffic which is not filtered by the firewall.

HI ok
try this
To uninstall IPv6:-

Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
At the command prompt, type:netsh int ipv6 uninstall and press the Enter Key.
Restart the computer.

you should install a firewall that can block protocol 41.
This will not only block teredo. but also 6to4 , 6over4 etc.

I think uninstalling IPv6 is the wrong approach.

NAT has given people a false sense of security especially when it comes to firewalls.
A NAT gateway is not a firewall.

Port Numbers are used with UDP (which is protocol 17) and TCP (protocol 6)

for a complete list of Internet Protocols see http://www.iana.org/assignments/protocol-numbers/protocol-numbers.txt
Some common ones are:

      1    ICMP            Internet Control Message              [RFC792]
      6    TCP             Transmission Control                  [RFC793]
      8    EGP             Exterior Gateway Protocol             [RFC888]
     17    UDP             User Datagram                         [RFC768]
     41    IPv6            IPv6 encapsulation                    [RFC2473]
     47    GRE             General Routing Encapsulation         
     50    ESP             Encap Security Payload                [RFC4303]

ok thank you.

These commands are what I have to enter to the firewall ?
Then my whole IPv6 traffic is blocked ?
And I have nothing to do on the clients itself ?
