Exactly. However, that's still wrong because some people might be using the default bookmarks.

No problems here.
Any extensions running? If so, have you tried with them disabled?
I had to disable the off-road mode (sorry i didn't know that was an extension ) thank you for helping me
Opera "USB install" is not really portable!
You can use Opera STABLE only with the Windows login of the system you installed the USB Stick. Changing account or hardware as PC/Notebook lets you loose the ability to retrieve stored passwords for logins.
I used only Opera 12.16 64-bit before installing Opera 15 and it imported the bookmarks just fine at the time, but if you have both a (old) 32-bit and a 64-bit profile I suspect that as sgunhouse says it'll fetch the 32-bit version bookmarks and ignore the 64-bit.
Do this to force a new import of data from the profile you want (WARNING: it'll replace any data you already have in Opera 19 AFAIK):

Open the Bookmark Importer from the Speed Dial
You'll find the Presto profile path in Opera menu -> About Opera.
The function could have a more descriptive name, or open a dialog explaining its functionality upon first activation. This has to be a dialog, not a webpage, which, if opened in the background, might be dismissed as a common popup.

Servers need regular maintenance. While that is being done, downloads may be slower. Some sites close altogether for an hour or more during routine maintenance.
So the very thing that you want them to do — fix the download server — is probably what's causing the slower than usual downloads.
no, opera wasn't causing any problems, i just decided on that system to remove the `growingly' obsolete software: it was my windows 7 system and i was playing with various replacement browsers, and had finally decided to use an opera-ized firefox (via extensions) as my default- though i'm still playing around and could switch to seamonkey???? (still playing with opera's mail program and haven't decided on whether to keep it or not). opera 19 is still on my system, but is looking increasingly irrelevant compared to firefox. i still use opera 12.16 on my linux, i find it faster than chomium and firefox, and security isn't as concerning on that system. so long story short ... opera 12 removed from my windows 7 for acceptance of inevitable.
on that system, antivirus is mse and webroot. additionally have winpatrol and spyshelter to harden system. problem may have come from spyshelter, though logs don't indicate this. but spyshelter can run browsers with limited user rights. this post interested me because there was some similarity in the problems. so i suggested my fix.
inversely jarodsafehouse71, if your problems only occur when opera is started, try my above suggestion. if your problems occur immediately with startup of system, you likely have other problems. you could try starting in safemode and tackle your problems from there. uninstall opera 12 to see if it was the root of your problems - if not you can always reinstall. scan your system for malware. make sure there are no updates for your drivers (or for windows in general). think about if you recently installed something new that might be causing conflicts and uninstall it to check (perhaps your antivirus just had a big, bad update?). if all else fails, it might be time for a system restore point (its so much easier than trying to figure it out, sometimes).
and for bookmarks etc. try: favbackup: http://download.cnet.com/FavBackup/3000-2242_4-10946542.html?tag=mncol;1
i used it with success in the past.
12.15 changelog: http://www.opera.com/docs/changelogs/unified/1215/
-- Fixed an issue where the search bar's default engine could be overridden by third-party apps.
-- Fixed a moderately severe issue, as reported by Attila Suszter; details will be disclosed at a later date.
-- Fixed: RC4 encryption protocol is vulnerable to certain brute force attacks. Due to the time this amount of requests takes, this is not a practical attack against most users.
-- Fixed: Cookies can be set for a top-level domain. In some cases, this may confuse a site's cookie handling, causing it to mistake that cookie for one of its own, and reusing it for authentication without modification. This could lead to the user's accounts being compromised on that site.
12.16 changelog: http://www.opera.com/docs/changelogs/unified/1216/
-- Opera Software recently experienced an attack on its internal infrastructure. Following best practices, Opera is replacing signing certificates in Opera with newly issued certificates. (The time window for possibly-compromised 12.15 version downloads was very narrow in time, but in principle some downloads could have been performed therein with flawed/faked certs, so Opera bumped the version to assure new clean certs would be deployed to users).
