OPERA 41.0.2353.69 not loading web pages. various installs tried

  • windows 10 64bit

    CPU: AMD FX-4130

    RAM: 12.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz

    Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. GA-78LMT-USB3 6.0 (Socket M2)

    connection: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

    running Opera 41

    opera will not load any pages.
    i guess "offline" functions are fine. but only get a little spinning loading symbol, even after half an hour.

    when uninstalling i always use iobit or revo, and both by default, set to delete all associated folders, so no remaining settings should be there to be imported. so that can't be it.

    As you can see, i've got a fairly powerful wee setup for a home PC, so guess it aint my setups fault.
    i can only think the issue may be with win 10, and opera?

    any ideas?
    i have looked at a posting with what may be a similar issue, but absolutely none of the replies seemed to solve anything, and they all went on about switching off antivirus and so on, which i refuse to do as this is windows after-all. windows seems to suck viruses in. and i don't see switching off anti-virus as a serious fix.

    opera has been given firewall priveliges, and i see no reason on my end why it should have been doing this to me for ther past few months. YES! it has been doing this constantly, anytime i install it for the past three to four months solid!
    i can use firefox for my basic daily needs, but there are certain things i rely on opera for that firefox can't dom (and vice versa. they are good "partner" browsers for me)

    any actual FIX advice will be greatly appreciated!

  • I have had to uninstall it. Same thing, no page loads, even About Opera. I am running Win 7-64, same version of Opera, one two computers (same OS), and on one, no page loads. They other still works (but with other issues). No other computer issues.
