40-50 network adapters showing up, can't get rid of them

#1
Please see the pic attached... there are TONS of network adapters showing up, and I can't uninstall any of them. Microsoft 6to4 adapters, Juniper Network Agent Miniports... it's like a party in my device manager and everyone was invited.

Any suggestions?

Hello and Welcome to windows7forums. : )

All those 6to4 devices listed in your screenshot are virtual, 6to4 adapter being a component used for transmitting IPv6 packets trough IPv4 network correctly. 6to4 adapters are sometimes created when a new interface comes up and the operating system determines it as a new 6to4 interface. If IPv6 is not deployed, 6to4 adapter will not affect your system at all, so you can safely uninstall it.

To uninstall the component, right-click the item in Device Manager and select "uninstall". If 6to4 adapter(-s) keep being automatically reinstalled, Start -> cmd -> type -> netsh in 6to4 set state disable.
