    Which version of Fiddler on what operating system? Does the problem persist after you restart your PC?

    I'm getting this as well.  Running v4.6.20173.38786 on Windows 7

    It worked fine and then one day it stopped working...not sure what changed.  Restarting does not help - re-download and reinstall didn't help either.  Going to try uninstall and reinstall next.
