I am using Wireshark 1.10.7, whenever I make any changes in preferences and click Apply/Ok, I am getting the follow error "Can't create directory "C:\Users\Admin\Application Data\Wireshark" for preferences file: File exists.
I tried uninstalling and removing all the registry file related to Wireshark and install it again, still hte issue persist. I also removed the wireshark folder from AppData\Roaming folder that didn't help either.
Please Help me resolve this issue.

That sounds like a Windows file permission problem. Please check the permissions of C:\Users\Admin\Application Data\Wireshark.
To verify the problem: Open the preferences file in an editor. Modify something and then try to save it.
If you get the same error: Check your file permissions (see above).
If you don't get the error: Please tell us how you started Wireshark, as then it apparently is running within a different user context.
