When I start the wireshark to monitor the interface It show the error message "The capture session could not be initiated on interface '\Device\NPF_{B9499BC2-E731-4608-85E6-CE2F4FD5C025}' (Error calling PacketGetTimestampModes: 功能錯誤。 (1))."

How should I do to solve this problem?

Please add output of wireshark -v or Help->About Wireshark to the question. That will include version info needed to help diagnose this.
