Opera will not start
sknoop last edited by
A couple of days ago, a few of my tabs stopped working. Today, I could not refresh or open any new tabs. I exited Opera and could not restart it. I tried to run as administrator, I upgraded. I cannot get Opera to start. Nothing shows in task manager, nothing showed in task manager when it stopped working. I have rebooted. Does anyone have any ideas? I did not uninstall, as I'm afraid to lose data, but expect that since upgrading did not work that uninstalling will be about the same. Does anyone have any ideas? I have found several older posts about this, but no resolutions.

@sknoop Today i got the same problem, after installing some another programs, seems the Opera corrupted. I wasn't able to start Opera in any way. I didn't want to to lose all data so I have been looking for workaround on web with no luck. Finally i found out "how to". Here's how I solved the issue without opera reinstalling.
- Open install folder of Opera e.g.: "C:\Program Files\Opera"
- Inside this folder find folder which name consist of version number, e.g.: "52.0.2871.99", open it
- Find "installer.exe" and Run it
- It will open installer, with an "Update" option, click next and proceed
- Update install will mostly repair all corrupted files, registry keys and etc...
I know it isn't solution for every situation, but it could help.
As I see, you got this issue 4 months ago, so i suppose you've already made a clear installation, so I post this as possible solution for another peoples facing same issue.
