Opera 25 does nothing but freeze, crash and reload with my Windows 8.1 OS system. Why?

  • I have an HP Pavilion desktop running Windows 8.1 OS which I only installed last week. I have Opera 25 browser also newly installed. Problem is all it seems to do is constantly reload and refresh, then it freezes and crashes! It just froze and stopped and then reloaded itself again five times while I was typing this message! How do I get it right? Thanks.

  • Check if it is some plugin, extension, program or adware, tour antivirus. Opera is working here in the same system.

  • I have something like that.
    Sicne the last update afew weeks ago, opera as turn sluggish. it takes like 3 to 4 seconds to open a new tab. In loading that tab it will take about abother 6 seconds. i dont know what the problem is, but am switching to chrome untill its fixed.
    My computer specs are:
    Intel Core i5-3570k
    Ram: 16gb
    GPU nvidia gtx 470
    ssd 128Gb + HD 1Tb

    Any help is apreciated.

  • As mentioned before check your plugins and extensions. Also, get Malwarebyes Antimalware and give your system a scan. Windows Defender/MS Security Essentials should also be run every now and then.
