[Solved]Data exchange at startup and closing

  • Hi,
    I'm curious, what Opera is doing after it started or closed? An icon at cursor keeps circling for 3-7 seconds after it's showed up on the screen or has gotten away. It doesn't happen if I switch wifi off. And nothing happens after I switch it on when it's already started.
    A little about myself: Opera 44.0.2510.857 (PGO), Windows 10.0.14393 Build 14393, no extensions installed, fresh install, not much data in cache. No theme selected, a checkbox Help improve Opera if off (sorry about that). Same happened to prior versions of Opera too.

    THanks

    Auto-update, synchronization, reading data from files, saving data to files, etc.

  • I think file i/o can be ruled out as it takes no time because that delay doesn't happen if I switch wifi off.

    So it's all about auto-update and sync. And it runs every time I run the browser even if I do it every 5 sec. Just on and off.

    Can I turn these things off or at least make them less frequent?

    Thanks

    Don't enable sync and for auto-update you can rename its executable file in Opera's installation folder.

  • Renamed opera_autoupdate.exe and it now closes without delay. Will run it myself whenever I recall that :)
    My sync has always been off.

    So perhaps file i/o takes those few seconds at start. I noticed the same delay when wifi was off.

    Thanks a lot for your help.
