    HP-pavilion ze4900
    Vista Ultimate
    without me installing any software or hardware, the system installed the driver by itself, but failed & gave me that yellow exclamation mark in front of the ISATAP ADAPTER # 4. When I right-click to update the driver, the search reveals that I have the most updated software. What is wrong? I don't know!!!

You have ipv6 enabled, this is to help the worldwide convergence to ipv6 form ipv4 . were running out of addresses if not already have ran out.
so from what i can tell it works with the tunneling adapter. altho it is still doing stuff on your computer, it's needed to make the internet work right now, if anyone of you have a "microsoft wi-fi miniport adapter" all of a sudden and you also don't like that you can't get rid of it unless you go to the web and download the old driver.
neither the miniport or the isatap adapter are actually "needed" you can get by without isatap if you either disable or uninstall ipv6. virtual wifi isn't needed, but it's uber cool cause it's for your wireless card and if you connect wireless to the internet, it will let you wirelessly share out that connection wirelessly , (like your a wireless router)

i think i should not that "eventually" you will need to install ipv6 to browse the internet.
more importantly it actually isn't designed to be a "TAP" but it certainly could be the target of hackers in the future including the mini-port (only because they are both new)

There is a yellow exclaimation on my network adapter in device manager

This not necessarily cause for alarm. You can try to reinstall the driver for the device to see if that clears out the exclamation mark and, most cases, it will.
The exclamation mark simply means that Windows has found some sort of problem with the device. Double-click the adapter and see what the Device Manager's status says about it. This can, generally, point you in the right direction on what is wrong.
If reinstalling the driver doesn't work then post what the Device Manager status is for the device.

click on the plus sign infront of network adaptors right click on the network card present click on uninstall. You will get a warning that you are about to uninstall this device from your system, select OK and once that device is gone restart the system go to the action tab on the top in device manager and select scan for hard ware changes the network card would be reinstalled automatically.

The 6TO4 and ISATAP Adapters have stopped.

You don't mention what laptop you have, but if you browse to the laptop manufacturers website, eg., they always have driver downloads for their products.
Download the drivers for your laptop and reinstall these to get your network card working.
Feel free to ask me for any further assistance regarding this matter.
Best wishes,
