So I decided to figure out what this is since this doesnt seem to be my Ethernet LAN card that I use to connect to internet.
Well I found so many people had this problem, and smarty me got the solution so quickly. I will not go in depth since then it would be redundant post/article on the web. Their are so many articles and discussion for the solution (applies to windows vista, 7):
Here are few links I found useful from where i got rid of entries:
I take no responsibility if anything goes wrong with your pc, I have only followed what was mentioned in above links.
The Tunnel adapter Local Area Connection entries are automatically created depending of the IPv4 range.
One way to prevent 6to4 to be automatically created is to use the following command in the command prompt:
This will disable its automatic creation, you don't need this if your organization is not going to migrate the internal network to IPv6.
Now lets get rid of the entries. If they are not many like less than 10 or so, you can do it from Device Manager, show hidden devices and then under Network adapters you will find all these. uninstall all of these entries one by one, but if you want to do it all automatically, I used it and got rid of it. here is a link to download. It includes a version for x64 and for x86 as well. It also includes instruction in readme.txt that you should read.
