I am attempting to install WireShark (Ethereal) on a Dell Latitude
running Windows/XP Pro, Service Pack 2.

I get the following message:

  WinPcap 3.1 Setup

  A previous version of WinPCap has been detected on the system and
cannot be
  removed because in use by another application.  Please close all the
  applications and run the installer again.

  The installation will now abort.

I have never installed WinPCap on this computer.  So far, I have not
figured out what I have installed that might have installed pieces of

How can I figure out what is preventing WinPCap from installing?
