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:

How to Disable IPv6 through Group Policy

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.

Here's a blog that goes into that.

Basically MS recommends against disabling it if you EVER are going to use it.  If you are 100% sure you're not, then you should be ok.
