Network Problem Resolved Itself After Wireshark Install

Hello all,

I have a bit of an odd scenario.

We have been having network issues with one of our applications here downloading files from a server. It affects about half the PC's.

In order to troubleshoot this problem I was going to try using Wireshark to look at the traffic. I noticed the problem went away soon as Wireshark was installed and came back soon as it was uninstalled.

I'm thinking this may be more related to Npcap that gets installed with it.

Does anyone know what it is changing during install that may be causing these issues to go away?

It would be nice to know what it is changing that is essentially "fixing" the issues without actually having to install either one.

Thanks, Justin
