My Wireshark is taking around 100 seconds to open. It hangs at "initializing external capture plugins". It happens with version 3.0.1, 2.6.8, and 2.6.6, I rolled back two version to see if there was a difference but nope . Initially I was running Winpcap (I think version 4.1.2 or .3), but now I'm running Npcap 0.995, I tried uninstalling and re-installing Winpcap first and when that did nothing I went to Npcap. I have Windows 10 Version 1709 on my pc.

If you have USBPcap installed, I assume you are hit by bug 12845 which has been recently fixed so the development version already doesn't hang that way.
