Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] How do I change the default capture filter
Interesting!
I would like to display filter on 200 known IPs, which if not practical in the GUI.
Could I put the filter into one of the dfiles found in the filders tab?
Or is there perhaps a better way?

How do I change the default capture filter?If you click on Help | About Wireshark and go to the Folders tab, it will show you the path for both Global and Personal configurations.
Hope this helps.

  At some time in the past I created a filter and managed to set it as the default filter, because every time I start Wireshark and start a capture that filter is shown in the "capture filter" text box.

This is a problem because I deleted the filter, so it is not found. How do I remove this default setting.
  To fix it I resorted to uninstalling wire shark (1.0.7) and reinstalled it.  The default filter was the non-existent filter.

I uninstalled wireshark and install ethereal (0.99). The default filter was still the non-existent filter. I uninstalled ethereal and installed wireshark (2.0 the July 2009 release). The default capture filter was still the non-existent filter.

I scanned the registry for the name of the filter. Not found. I searched the entire C: drive looking for the filter by name. Not found. This is like a spirit from the other side that has not found peace and cannot rest. Your help is needed. How do I remove this setting?
