Opera unusable on windows 11

I'm trying to use Opera with Windows 11 but I'm having a lot of problems:
- Opera is very slow to start (> 1 min) and the first site again takes more than 1 minute to display the first site (With Edge it is immediate)
- Opera crashes regularly
- On a light background favorite popup Windows, (settings, downloads...) are illegible Conclusion Opera (like Google Chrome) is unusable on Windows 11, so I use, for now, set, Edge as the default browser. Too bad I liked Opera a lot

I have a brand new computer and a brand new install of Windows, all the other programs work fine, opera takes a minute to open, huffs and puffs and stutters like a retarded fat guy running uphill, and is generally unusuable. I don't care why it doesnt work, because that's not my problem. I refuse to do the work of programmers. If it doesn't work, immediately, on all devices, it is gone. I will be completely ceasing all use of opera on all devices.
Nevermind, uninstalled it and deleted my account. I'm done playing technician because you can't get your sh*t together. Nobody is paying me and your product isn't worth any effort.

For the past day or so, Opera hangs on startup. I click on the icon to start it, but nothing seems to happen. The Opera process shows up in the Task Manager, however. If I try again to start it, it just results in more hung processes showing up in the Task Manager.
I just tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but the installer hangs on "Installing for current user".
I have Windows 11 Home Edition. Windows installed some updates a couple days ago, so I think the problem might be related to that.

@reggert1980 You can manually clean Opera from your system and reinstall (including doing that all again and starting with new profile and cache folders if leaving them the first time doesn't help).
You can test to see if you can successfully make a standalone installation to a folder on your desktop. If not, there's probably really something wrong with Windows.
There's this issue that you can check for. But, it should have been fixed a while ago.
There's also this issue that you can check for. But, since you're seeing an Opera process remain in the Windows task manager, that's probably not the case.
