Opera freezes indefinitely at start

  • Hi guys, I'm having a huge issue and no solution, hope you can help.

    Since yesterday, for now apparent reason I can't use Opera anymore. When I launch it, it freezes indefinitely. I can force kill it, it works sometime but sometime a process stay active and can't be killed.
    I have no idea what caused this. The browser was opened for a couple of hours and suddenly it just stopped working.

    What I attempted so far :

    Restart computer
    Run as administrator
    Uninstall/Reinstall the latest version, and even older versions
    Delete the folders from /Local and /Roaming, then uninstall and restart the computer. Install it again, same issue.
    Sacrifice a chicken
    Cleaned data and registry with CCLeaner
    Antivirus check using Adware cleaner
    Latest windows update (the issue happened before I updated)
    My gear :

    Windows 10
    Opera latest version
    I do not run a tier antivirus software, just Win Defender
    Any clue ?


  • @tulipkapy i think it is about opera sync module.
    i start the opera in private mode, then log out the syncronization acount in the settings.
    now opera works normally.
