Is there a GPO I can use to unbind IPV6 from Windows 7 machines permanently? I can uncheck the binding of it in tcp\ip properties but it comes back on reboot.

You can disable IPv6 permanently by editing following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters
In the right pane, edit DisabledComponents entry and enter value: 0xffffffff
If there is no such entry, create it by right clicking in the right pane and selecting DWORD.

For complete key values that the key can contain, consult How to disable IP version 6 or its specific components in Windows

If you want to control IPv6 through GPO there are custom ADMX and ADML files that allow you to do that.
Go to TechNet Wiki article to download files and additional information.

While this does work, it does not, however, uncheck the IPv6 in the Local Area Connection properties. Does anyone know a way to do both?
