Opera and G Data

  • Hi guys,

    since a few month I have a problem with my Opera Browser and G Data Antivirus.

    Each time I start Opera the G DATA Filesystem Monitor Service runs up to 100% CPU load.
    It depends on the tabs Opera has to open how long the G DATA Service stays at 100%.
    If there is only one tab to open my system (i5, 16 GB RAM, SSD) hangs for about 10 seconds. If Opera has to open severel tabs (5-10) my system sometimes stays unuseable for about 3-5 minutes!

    The problem persists on Windows 7 and later on Windows 10 after an upgrade or an complete fresh install of Windows 10.
    The problem persists on several Opera Versions and after several G DATA program updates.
    And the problem persists on my Laptop, too.

    So I think the problem has to do something with Opera sync, which I use.

    Is there anyway to solve this problem and keep my bookmarks?

    Thank you and greets

  • Sync? You said it varies depending on the number of tabs that are open, but sync would not do so.

  • Hello, did you found any solution for Opera and Gdata cooperation. I suppose that problem has occurred after upgrade gdata to the newest version 27.# . Time of full cpu load depends on number of active tabs. I've sync off, just Adblock add-on.

    I noticed that previous version 25.# works much better.

    Thank you
    Bartek
