I Use wireshark on my company provided laptop in which I dont have admin rights. Wireshark used to work fine but once when wireshark was starting, my laptop crashed and Wirshark isnt working after I rebooted the laptop. Wireshark 1.6.6 version always got stuck on intializing tap listeners. I got it re-installed with a newer version 2.4.4 but this also gets stuck on Loading module preferences. Kindly help to resolve ASAP.

Perhaps your preference file is damaged, try to delete it. C:\Users\your user \AppData\Roaming\Wireshark\preferences
