W10 X64 latest updates since October 2017 Opera freezes my PC.

  • W10 X64 latest updates since October 2017 Opera freezes my PC.
    Regular, recurrent, after about 30 to 50 min usage. Anyone an Idea??

    I'll go to the link & post problem too.

    Just want to add that I have the same problem. When it happens, Task Manager shows that the Disk use percentage is in the high 90's to 100%. The high percentage flips between Opera & System. The content of the pages makes no difference. The %Disk usage goes down after I shut down Opera, but recurs on restarting the program. Have to reboot for it to be functional again. Doesn't happen with other progs.

    Going to problems link now.

    -- EDIT --
    On Report Problems pg, it says to try disabling extensions & flags. Am trying & will report back after running for a few hours... 😛

  • @asmc
    IT WORKED!!!
    I tried 2 of the rec's on the page for reporting problems:

    • turn off all extensions
    • reset flags to default

    After 3 hr, my computer and Opera are both back to normal, running smoothly. The Disk usage has been less than 5% except a couple of times when it should have gone up (loading big pg, etc). It immediately went back down.

    There are some other trouble-shooting recommendations on report probs page, so even if your situation is different, it's worth checking into. I think resetting flags fixed mine. Am going to re-activate my only extension & see what happens.

    Thanks leocg!!!

  • Oh yeah, forgot to say: DOH!
