Opera using too much CPU and unable to find sites

  • Opera is using up to 50% CPU on an I7 and having difficulty to find sites (including Google). The same was happening with Chrome, but apparently it was fixed after I updated it today. I believe this started to happen after the latest Windows 10 upgrade. Firefox and Edge, however, and working normally.

    I tried several possible solutions (disabling extensions, updating drivers, etc.), but nothing worked so far. Is this a known issue? I would appreciate any suggestion, as Opera has always been my browser of choice.

  • @aleph99 I din't check CPU usage but here Opera has no problems finding pages.

  • I was wrong about Chrome. It is still having issues, as well as Opera. MS Edge and Firefox are working normally thought, which seems to indicate that the issue is not with my Internet access. Perhaps some quirky behavior with the new Windows version, or else I have some outdated drivers (I did check though, and everything seems up to date). I've really ran out of options on how to solve the problem.
