"NPF Driver not working" is what I get every time I start up wireshark and I went to the forums and found what worked for most people; typing in commands to start it up, but when I do it says "service name is invalid" and I'm thinking something didn't install right or something... Help?

You don't mention what version of Windows you're running, but maybe the answers provided to question 1281 will help you, as it seems to be related. If not, try searching for answers to similar questions tagged with npf.
