i know a little about computers, enough to do a few simple cmd commands but i dont know much about results.  about a week ago my ipconfig results started coming up with several temporary ipv6 adresses that werent there before and possibly some other differences.  is that normal?  

 

please help, little bit paranoid about this kind of stuff.

Did you read the article? "To reduce the prospect of a user identity being permanently tied to an IPv6 address portion, a node may create temporary addresses with interface identifiers based on time-varying random bit strings[40] and relatively short lifetimes (hours to days), after which they are replaced with new addresses."

Your welcome, It's possible your ISP just started supporting IPV6 which could be why your computer just started generating the temporary addresses.
