If you require internet, at least:

Client for Microsoft Windows
Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)

and nothing else is necessary.

Before doing anything do the test here:

IPv6 test - IPv6/4 connectivity and speed test

and here:

Test your IPv6.

to check whether your ISP has IPv6 capable connections.

Beyond that, a standalone PC running Windows 7 is supposed to be designed to be running IPv6 and the supported link layers and tunnelling protocols - but they seem to be extra bits that can go wrong, and often are not fully working anyway.

If not networking, file and printer sharing is not needed. is IPv6 enabled is not!
