RE: The latest versions of Opera do not work on Windows 10 Creators Update
@cesaraquino said in The latest versions of Opera do not work on Windows 10 Creators Update:
@burnout426 I just did and it's not working. And I realize it doesn't work with Vivaldi either, it only works from Firefox. I don't understand.
Firefox uses its own network stack instead of the system's. Chromium browsers like Chrome, Opera and Vivaldi use the system's. IE and Edge should use the system's too. That points towards something in Windows being the issue.
Open "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\HOSTS" in a text editor. What's it look like?
In "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections" (as in, "Start -> Settings -> Network and Internet -> the connect you're using -> change adapter settings"), right-click on the adapter you're using and goto "properties". In the properties on the Network tab, check the properties for both IPv4 and IPv6 and make sure IP address and DNS are set to "automatically". If they are, you could try some free DNS servers listed at https://www.lifewire.com/free-and-public-dns-servers-2626062 to see if that makes any difference. You could also test to see if it's a DNS issue by getting the IP addresses of some sites and entering them into Opera's address field to see how fast the pages load that way.
In internet options in the control panel, on the connections tab, in addition to unchecking "automatically detect settings", make sure "use a proxy server" isn't set if you didn't already check that part.
You could try AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes to see if they find anything.
Although you shouldn't have to, you could defrag your hard drive. WinXP had an issue sometimes where after a service pack update, all the network stuff would take forever to load on startup, where a defrag would fix it. Not exactly the same thing, but something you could try if not using an SSD. You could uninstall and reinstall your drivers for your wifi card or LAN card. You could try to find newer drivers too. But, not sure how much that'd since Firefox works fine. But, you can try.
You could use CrystalDiskInfo to make sure your hard drive isn't failing and possibly corrupting things.
You could reset the firewall settings if you didn't already.
I assume you've shut your system all the way down and started it back up again just for good measure?
