Suddenly this evening, Opera now crashes on every other start. In the task manager I find Opera using one whole CPU core, with no disk access, and no change in the amount of memory in use. I also see "opera crash reporter" running, but nothing is displayed on the screen. If I kill Opera and start it again it works. Then crashes the following time. Is it trying to do an update or something?
EDIT: I've discovered it's actually crashing on EXIT. Hence:
- Successfull start.
- Close Opera, I can't see it's still running but crashed.
- Open Opera, nothing happens.
- Kill in task manager.
- Start normally.
- Goto 2.
EDIT: Version number is 74.0.3911.203
I closed Opera, downloaded it, thinking I might get a newer one that was stuck upgrading, and installed it. No help.
Strangely, when I run Opera, I see "Opera Internet Browser (24)" in the task manager, expanding this, I see the crash reporter running (before it's crashed!) and 23 instances of Opera. Is that normal?
