That's inside your environment? Did someone configured NAP (network acces protection) maybe there is still something on your pc and due to that you won't get an IP-address.

Do you have access to another computer? Try to reinstall the driver of your network card. Maybe the virus or virusremover did something to a necessairy file.

The 6to4 adapter is for passing IPv6 traffic through IPv4.

It doesn't hurt to remove all of them... just one should get reinstalled when you reboot, so having 20 of them is NOT right, and could quite possibly be the cause of not being able to get an IP address from DHCP.
