What the @#@$ is Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling?

What the @#@$ is Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling?

(OP)
This is what I get when I run IPCONFIG. It gives a strange IP address and includes sonething called "Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface:" Does anyone know what this is? Should I get rid of it? How to get rid of it? Before I reformatted my drive this wasn't there.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

You updated through Windows Update to the last Peer to Peer workstation support package, including support for IP VI.

Just ignore the tunnels.  You can remove them with device manager if you choose.

TRY REMOVING THE MICROSOFT TCI/IP VERSION 6 FROM YOUR CONNECTION CONFIG SETTINGS

It is not difficult to uninstall.  Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, it is found in the Hotfix section.
