    Which internet connections to disable for better security


    I want to improve my security. See pic. Which of these should I turn off?
    ( I'm using up-to-date Win 10. I don't have any kind of home network or NAS or anything like that. Only using Wifi and a USB connected printer. )

    I disable all, except IPv4. You could actually uninstall all of those in the past, but for whatever reason, MS prevented it. I expect, that MS will take away this option as well, once it removes this old control panel. I also disable other features in IPv4 as well as IPv6 to improve privacy, security, reliability, plus TCP Optimizer.

    P.S.: aDSL connection requires NetBIOS to be enabled.
    Code:
    wmic nicconfig where DHCPEnabled=TRUE call SetDNSServerSearchOrder ("9.9.9.9","149.112.112.112")
    netsh int ipv6 isatap set state disabled
    netsh int teredo set state disabled
    netsh interface ipv6 6to4 set state state=disabled undoonstop=disabled
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters" /v "DisabledComponents" /t REG_DWORD /d "255" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters" /v "EnableLMHOSTS" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    wmic nicconfig where TcpipNetbiosOptions=0 call SetTcpipNetbios 2
    wmic nicconfig where TcpipNetbiosOptions=1 call SetTcpipNetbios 2

    Thanks. I disabled a number of them. Cheers.
