Running windows 7, my interface card and loopback device disappeared in WS 3 but 3 USBPcaps stil there

Having very odd problem with connecting to my ISP mail server, so I decided to try and use wireshark. Some month ago I had version 2.6.6 installed, when starting an offer to upgrade to 3.0 which I accepted.

Slight hitch with Winpcap and Npcap, do not remember too well if the install offered to uninstall winpcap or/and I had to use the control panel to uninstall winpcap. Whicever I did get WS 3 installed and had two interfaces, the normal intel card interface and loopback interface and 3 USBpcap hidden options.

I was collecting some snapshots and trying to familarise myself with the new GUI after many years not really having to use WS. Not sure why at some stage I looked in control panel and noticed that winpcap still installed.

Thinking that getting rid of that would perhaps be a good idea, unfortunately uninstalling lost the intel interface. Then I also uninstalled Npcap. No interface left to select.

Installing Npcap again from Nmap site I think it was, still no interface.

Next step, uninstalled WS and re-installed again this time letting WS install Npcap .

WS seems to work ok apart from no interface except USBPcaps.

I am not very familiar with Windows 7 only use it because I need it for running an ECAD program.
