All recent versions of Opera now crashing after about 2 minutes

  • Longtime Opera user.
    Last 2 weeks latest ver 44 started crashing after 2 or 3 minutes.
    Tried everything including deleting all traces of Opera (inc numerous registry ) from pc and clean installs of ver 44 and 43 both 32 & 64 bit. All crash the same way.
    I suspect it's NOT Opera but the failure of a (win 10) service or clash with something.
    Win 10 fully updated and have run sfc /scannow = ok - so not that.
    Also noted that VLC crashes when try to play any video (but not until then).
    Chrome & Edge working fine as just about everything else.
    No recent software adds and only hardware change was clone of o/s drive to ssd - no know issues following that.
    All help appreciated.

  • Try disabling hardware acceleration.

  • Hi leocq - have the Radeon HD5450 card installed - no option to turn off hardware acceleration found.

    However - updated to win 10 Creators Update this morning (which updated all drivers too) and Opera 43 is fine at the moment - it's now updating to the latest stable so will let you know.


  • no option to turn off hardware acceleration found.

    It's an Opera option, just search in settings (if needed).
