[npcap] Issue with reboot/hibernate/uninstall/taskmanager in npcap 0.996 #1664

I recently installed Wireshark 3.0.2 (including npcap 0.995) and began having the following issues:

  • reboot/hibernate would hang and eventually fail
  • task manager would hang after one "refresh" (no network details visible on the "Performance" tab either)
  • unable to uninstall npcap (stuck on stopping the service)

It seems that some or all of these are known issues in 0.995, and I was eventually able to remove npcap by first disabling the npcap service as noted in #1626 and #1598.

Without npcap installed the issues above are resolved, however on installing 0.996 the problems have returned.
