The protocol is meant to let Windows XP access the next generation of IP addresses (IP6), which is not yet in widespread use. Until Microsoft solves the problems with this protocol, then I recommend that people uninstall it.
|Uninstall "Microsoft TCP/IP version 6" network protocol:|
I just found out that Microsoft has been "pushing" an update to install this faulty protocol to Windows XP users. I don't know if it is a "high priority" update or not. If you use dial-up for your Internet, you definitely will need to uninstall this protocol, and make sure that Windows Update or Microsoft Update does not install it again!
