  • About 90% of the times I open Opera (stable, 73.0.3856.284) it closes itself/crashes immediately. 5% of the time, it opens for around 1 minute and then closes itself/crashes. Sometimes it says "Can't open user profile directories because you lack sufficient privileges. You might want to contact the administration of this machine." This, I don't understand because the profile is not corrupt as I've tried creating a new profile by deleting the old one, reinstalling the application through the installer and went for a 100% clean uninstall. I've tried disabling extensions and running the application in administrator mode, but those don't help and the application just chooses whether or not to open and work or not. Any help appreciated!

  • I tried to install Opera Next and Opera GX, which both suffered from the exact same issue as Opera Stable.
