Newest build just downloaded to try and fix start-up problem I am getting. Gets to 99% and freezes. So this is with the last 2 versions. Any ideas? Win 7 Pro 64bit NB I thought I had already asked this but it shows up blank, so if there ends up a repeat, I am sorry. Fixed but don't know why. I did have wireshark off the PC for a week now and reinstalled the very same download and this time started fine. I was going to load a screen shot. It has asked for update to be done within a minute of starting and it ran OK. Go figure. Got me puzzled. Thanks for the suggestions guys ( n gals if there are any)

Usually this is a sign of WinPcap failing to load properly. Are you running on Windows 8? You could eventually try to reinstall WinPcap. See https://ask.wireshark.org/questions/26517/winpcap-seems-to-crash-on-win81

The reason could be a somehow broken config file. You'll find the folder being used on your system in the Help menu
See "Personal Configuration".
Save the files (if you need them) and then remove all files. Then start Wireshark.
