I open Wireshark and it says there are no interfaces found. But when I was installing it, it said there was an error the error code was 0x80087007e I looked it up and found nothing. I tried to redownload Ncap with the link it gave me but it failed again. Then I searched again and found something called Winpcap I went to download it and it said I already had it.

You need a capture service to see interfaces, npcap is the one currently used by Wireshark, WinPcap is obsolete.

Can you post the contents of the Wireshark -> Help -> About Wireshark dialog as text in your question so we can see what Wireshark thinks you have?

Sure, but I do not know how to get to that can you show me how?

From the Wireshark application, click on the "Help" menu , then "About Wireshark". On the dialog there's a "Copy to Clipboard" button to copy the text, then paste the text into your question.
