    1.Navigate to Start > DNS Manager.
    2.Expand off DNS options.
    3.Right-click the DNS server name and select 'Properties'.
    4.Under the 'Listen on' field, select the 'Only the following IP addresses' radio button and uncheck any IPv6 address that is listed under it.
    5.Click on 'Ok' to complete the process.
