Microsoft's recommendation is not to disable IPv6 on any OS greater than XP. If you still want to though, you can use this KB: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929852

Would you know why? We dont use IPV6 on our network and we notice some DNS issues. So when I ping some machines or doing nslookups, it pulls back IPV6 addresses instead of IPV4. Im wondering if it could be related.
