Windows 7: Can't ping IPv6 sites anymore.

Windows 7
Can't ping IPv6 sites anymore.

For the longest of time I've been able to ping the Google IPv6 servers until a few days ago that it gives me some error that it can't find the host:

I get the same error on my laptop and desktop, and I even tried changing routers and I still get the same error.

Here's what it used to look like before, even if I didn't get a response from the IPv6 server, I could at least ping it, but now it doesn't even let me anymore:

Is it possible that my ISP stopped allowing this?

If it were an OS problem, I could still ping from other desktops/laptops I have, but I can't.

If it were a router problem, I would be able to ping with a different router I have, but I can't.

I'm not sure why this isn't working through the command prompt anymore but the link below seems to have a method that works for this.
