Not too sure if this is the place to post this but I just noticed recently that the Teredo tunneling adapter keeps turning itself on. It never turned on before prior to this so I'm not too sure why it's activated itself now. It happened after I used a VPN but I've used it before and it never activated itself.

I keep disabling it in devices manager but as soon as I reboot the computer, it re-installs itself. It says on the events for the adapter that nettun.inf reinstalls it every time it reboots. I had to run a command prompt as administrator to (hopefully) permanently disable it.

Is this just a windows bug or has my system been compromised by something?

Teredo tunneling is a transition technology that gives full IPv6 connectivity for IPv6-capable hosts which are on the IPv4 Internet but which have no direct native connection to an IPv6 network.

I was just wondering if it was normal for the IPV6 network to connect to IP addresses that didn't originate from the country I was in? I never noticed it being activated before and only noticed it when I was testing to see if my VPN was leaking.

Its normal your ISP may not be using IPv6 protocol but other ISP all around the word may do and some does use IPv6 protocol.
