Is it possible to limit which interface can me monitored on a Windows system? Seems easy to do in Linux but we want only one Ethernet adapter to run wireshark/winpcap and the other nics in the system are not allowed.

That's only possible if you build your own version of Wireshark and filter the list of interfaces that is delivered by WinPcap.
