Yes i know, it's the same with 127.0.0.1 and those addresses shouldn't be visible in the system monitor, and it isn't. But it was worth to try it anyway.
I don't understand why ipv6 addresses appear. I must have missed something somewhere.
I have disabled ipv6 on all my win7 computers years ago and i have no ipv6 addresses on them. So i know it is possible to disable ipv6. but it just don't work on this win8.1 machine, so i must have missed something.. but what..

Then with certainty it is not a registry issue. It could be a device driver configuration, or a startup service.

BTW, you don't need multiple copies of ISATAP driver. Delete them all, and one would probably re-generate on new boot. (The ISATAP driver allows IPv6 traffic to use an IPv4 network.)

I have deleted them too and still i get ipv6 addresses
The next step I am doing now is to look up system files that contain settings for ipv6 and also ipv6 dll files.
Fortunately, I have the system recovery discs if I tear apart the system too much. *HaHaHa*

But this dissection of the system's IPv6 may be of use to someone else in the future.

My temporary solution until I find the solution, is that i have blocked all ipv6 protocols and addresses in the firewall.

What I do find interesting is that the ipv6 addresses are still visible in the system monitor... While blocked ipv4 addresses are never visible there if they are blocked.
