Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!

Download Opera browser with:

  • built-in ad blocker
  • battery saver
  • free VPN
Download Opera
  • When trying to connect, the entire screen will freeze. I have to manually restart the computer.

    How can I fix this? I've downloaded the latest version compatible with Vista

  • What is the version number? Do you have any extensions enabled? Have you tried another browser to see if it is related to your computer rather than the Opera browser? Have you run an AV/malware program to see if there are other possible explanations? Have you cleaned out your cache? checked the task manager?

  • it also happens to me and it doesn't matter what version it is. It seems to happen with all the blink-based Opera versions. For reference, I'm using Win 8.1 x64, Opera 26. I use Nod32 and Comodo firewall, but things seem to work fine with mozilla-based browsers and IE. After a while, blink-based browsers seem to halt the computer. You don't need to restart as it evenutally comes back, but process explorer or task manager will show 100% CPU and 100% disk usage attributed to no one process, but to the SYSTEM process.

    it's odd and only reproducible after browsing for a period of time. I've noticed several other posts about the exact same thing, but it hasn't been seriously investigated for a solution.
