I've noticed the last couple months that my Win 7 laptop was running slower. And when I ran ipconfig /all I had over 300 network adapters being returned. Looking in Device Manager I only saw two NICs though.
I didn't know there where hidden devices in Device Manager. After going to View->Show Hidden Devices I saw all 330+ network adapters.
I uninstalled all the tunnelling and 6to4 adapters and followed this to prevent them from coming back http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852 The only reg key that worked for me was 0x01 to disable all tunnel IPv6 interfaces.
Anyway now ipconfig /all shows only one NIC. My laptop boots much faster and anything I do related to network responds faster too.
So if you have Win7 check it, might help you out too.
