    Ok just kidding, figured out my problem

    Mine would hang at "opening tun device: null"

    So what I did was go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections
    and my Local Area Connection 2 was disabled, so I enabled it and Tether used Local Area Connection 3 and it seems to work!
