error message I get when I try to launch Wireshark

Build Information:
1.6.0 - I downloaded the latest stable from your website 2 hours ago. 

Can't get the exact info as the GUI won't start up. I didn't install the
command line tools so no luck there either.
Wireshark crashes upon start up of the program. The error message is attached.
After this error, Windows will say "Wireshark has stopped working" and then it

More Details - 

- Windows 7 Enterprise
- 64-bit
- DEll E5420 (i5 core)
- 4GB of RAM
- New install. Never had any other Wireshark installed
- Did not install WinPCAP as I only need to view packet captures made on other
machines (Linux, etc)
- Cygwin 1.7.9-1 installed (if that makes any differences). Heavily using it so
can't uninstall and try
- Restarting the laptop didn't help
- search on the web didn't yield much info. Most say it is due to out of
memory, but this is not possible in my case as the program itself is not
starting up. I didn't get to open any file...

Happy to supply any logs, etc.
