Turning off Winpcap or Ncap at Startup

I have been having issues ever since my PC at work was upgraded to Windows 10 with Wireshark. It seems to hang at initialization time when it looks for the NIC cards. I normally don't use Wireshark to trace my interfaces on my PC so I really don't need that piece of the software enabled.

Is there some kind of parameter or setting in Wireshark to disable using Winpcap or NCAP at startup which is now available in Wireshark 3.0 ?
