The NPF driver isn't running. You may have trouble capturing or listing interfaces.
then when i tried to list the available interfaces ..it gave me an error saying There are no interfaces on which a capture can be done.
please help me i have no idea what to do

Did you install WinPcap with Wireshark? And did you install it with elevated privileges (Adminitrator rights)?
To be able to capture packets, WinPcap needs to have elevated privileges.

Typing "net start npf" in PowerShell as Admin worked for me.

A quick solution that worked for me was to set WireShark to run as administrator (from it's shortcut's settings, Compatibility tab). This way it was able to automatically start the NPF driver by itsef at start up.
