I am using Windows 7 64bit edition; when i first installed Wireshark it worked, but after restart its constantly telling me NPF driver is not running error and therefore I cannot see any of my network cards. Please help
I am using Wireshark on the 64-bit edition of Windows 7 without problem.
The npf driver is not visible in your regular "Computer Management" WMI-interface. The npf status is best checked with the command line.
Run a cmd.exe as administrator and run the command sc qc npf.
You should get some output like this:
If your driver is not properly started, activate it with the command sc start npf
Finally, to start the service automatically, use the command sc config npf start=auto
Remember to run your cmd.exe as administrator when issuing these command.

Just run the shark under administrator and it will work as well.
