Windows 7: Which ones can I delete?

15 Feb 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit SP1

Registry tinkering is risky, but I do have prior experience and I had a system image to restore back to just in case the worst happened.

Yes it did replenish itself. Before playing around I had only two ISATAP interfaces, but soon I saw a third ISATAP! I did manage to delete four of those interfaces completely. That was by removing full control the admin/system had on those keys, replacing it with read only. But something went weird with the IPV6 adapter, so that was why I restored the image.

It seems like Microsoft really wants those adapters to be around, even if you don't have a use for them. So I'll leave them all disabled.

You can check the key
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\psched\Parameters\Adapters, and NdisAdapters

And in
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Lansvc\Profiles\Interfaces...where.xml files are stocked and renewed.
