@jd401 When you "start" the computer each time the problem occurs, is that startup from a cold, powered-down state or from a hibernation/sleep state? When you say you "open both a browser and Outlook at the same time" when the problem occurs, does that mean they're automatically opening upon "start" using a "resume" mode (which implies the system is coming out of hibernation/sleep)? In that case, it's possible there's some kind of contention or race at auto-startup coming out of hibernation/sleep between Outlook and Opera involving a common driver or service; and that may be generating an error.
