Loads of fake network adapters?

When I run ipconfig I have 27 network adapters, but I only have 2 or 3. Why does this happen and how can I clean it up?

Looks like at least one is a VPN tunnel, as well as some of the built-in IPv6 transition adapters. I don't see anything to get too excited about. It's fairly normal for Win Vista/7 to have boatloads of network adapters listed. No need to clean it up. In fact, if you do starting "cleaning it up", you might introduce problems further on down the road when you actually need some of those services.
