By doing that you have opened a huge security-hole in your windows installation. The way to get that driver installed is to run the installer "As Administrator", from the right-click context menu. If you don't have Administrator access to your PC, get a systems admin to install it for you.
You'd better restore the original settings on these folders.

You should upgrade to Npcap.

It is faster & fully compatible to very old WinPcap.

Cheers.


edit
And it works, since i wrote that it is compatible, with UrlSnooper aswell, i just tested it.

Some tools have WinPCap as a hard-coded requirement, I'm afraid.

However, If you get the latest version of a tool called WireShark, it will automatically install a modern version of WinPCap if it detects that it is missing from your system. Modern installers of WinPCap do not require you to misconfigure your Windows installation, opening it up for any form of attack available since Windows 98.

All my Sniffer Type applications that are based on usage of WinPcap work in harmony with Ncap. I guess they are all Hardcoded, like UrlSnooper aswell.

(WireShark suggest during installation to upgrade to Ncap if it detect installed WinPcap.)



Just my 2 cents.
