how to kill dumpcap.exe

i noticed if i select multiple trace files in windows explorer, there is a 90% chance that Wireshark will hang while loading.

i can kill the wireshark.exe process but not the dumpcap.exe process.

i tried doing it from the an elevated/admin command prompt and the taskkill command as well as a bunch of other utilitlies with no luck.

In one of the forums someone suggested renaming the exe file and/or filder and that didnt work either.

my computer wont even even restart or shutdown properly and i have to hold the power button down to force a shutdown.

i am using Windows 8.1 and Wireshark 2.4.3

thanks in advance
