    How Do I Remove TAP Adapters from Laptop?

    I got a list of TAP Adapters under my Network Adapters in Device Manager. I've tried to remove these by uninstalling them. But they keep popping back. How do I COMPLETELY remove them forever?

    They need to stay. They are a part of IPv6, which is how Home Group works.

    Also they handle When You are routed through IPv4 to IPv6 tunnels.
