IPV6: DHCPv6 and DNSv6

Hi,

I found these two addresses within out network.

ff02::fb is same as FF02:0:0:0:0:0:0:FB - just shorten      mDNSv6  
FF02:0:0:0:0:0:1:2      All-dhcp-agents      [RFC3315]

What does this mean?  Is a DNSv6 running?  Is a DHCP v6 running?  

Any insight into this would be appreciated.

mDNSv6 is multitask DNS

The multicast Domain Name System (mDNS) is a zero configuration host name resolution service. It uses essentially the same programming interfaces, packet formats and operating semantics as the unicast Domain Name System (DNS) to resolve host names to IP addresses within small networks that do not include a local name server, but can also be used in conjunction with such servers.

Is this installed by default on a windows box?  When I ping that IP address is resolves to another IP address. Any ideas?  thanks.
