I'm new to Wireshark and I'm trying to learn the basics, but when I open up Wireshark it only shows my USB ports as interfaces. For some reason it's not finding my NIC. Any suggestions?

Can you paste the contents of Help -> About Wireshark dialog (the Wireshark tab)? We need all the text beginning with "Version ...", highlight it with the mouse and copy with Ctrl + C.

My Wireshark is now just crashing on startup. I've removed and installed it a few times now and it's still just crashing. I'm going to try and troubleshoot more but I think this is actually an issue with my machine rather than the software. Thanks for your time.
