Can't load anything in Opera

  • I upgraded to the newest opera, and pages stopped being able to load. I knocked out my user profile, both in AppData/Roaming and AppData/Local; reinstalled Opera and still the pages are stuck on the "about:blank" page. I cannot even load opera settings or tools.

    I uninstalled Opera, deleted the AppData files, and then installed a standalone version of opera. The same issue occurred here.

    I'm using Windows 8.1 if that matters to anyone, although I think what is happening is some dependency that opera needs for rendering is not working properly.

    Anyone have any ideas?

  • I upgraded to the newest opera...

    Stable release or what?
    Upgraded - you mean how? Manually?

  • It was the latest stable release - it was a manual upgrade from < 12, when it was pre-webkit.

  • You didn't install the new Opera in the same directories as the old one did you?
