The link to
https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/markrussinovich/2005/08/17/unkillable-processes/
was interesting.

I haven't seen this suggested yet and have no idea if it will help, but before
rebooting, maybe stopping the WinPcap driver, npf.sys would help?  Can you try
running "net stop npf" from an administrator's command prompt and see if the
dumpcap processes terminate or if you're able to kill them after that?  You can
always restart the driver after with "net start npf".

Ultimately, moving from WinPcap to npcap may be the best solution, but I'm
curious if stopping the WinPcap driver has any affect.
