Disabling IPv6

I'm looking to disable IPv6 AND have it be unchecked in the Local Area Connection properties. I'd like to accomplish this via GPO. I know I can disable IPv6 via an ADMX template or a Registry entry, either via GPO and\or GPP. I've tested both and both work, but neither unchecks IPv6 in the Local Area Connection properties. I'd like to do both. Is that possible?

The registry entries that control the unbinding of IPv6 from a specific adapter are somewhat numerous (i.e. more than one or two).  The best explanation I've found is here.

Since this doesn't give you any benefit over just disabling IPv6 as explained how in the following link, I see little point into putting in the effort.

Thanks, but I guess I'll just do the registry entry via GPP to disable IPv6 and not worry about what is seen in Local Area Connections as I'm not going to be able to push a "one size fits all" registry entry via GPP that unbinds IPv6 from all the various network adapters that exist in the environment. Just trying to make it more efficient for our desktop personnel.

Solution is a valid solution, but it will not work for me in my environment as I'm looking for a "one size fits all"
