I recently had an issue with opera that I could not figure out why was happening. I recently upgraded my CPU, and upon getting my settings dialed in and my computer loaded up, Opera would randomly crash and reopen, with occasional full crashes where opera did not reopen.
I tried everything, I deleted and reinstalled every Opera file, I ran memory diagnostics, I checked for malware, used the command prompt to do an SFC scan and a DISM restore. Eventually, I checked the event log around the time it crashed, and found I got a 10016 Distributed COM error code. I went through the whole regedit process to try to get the error to stop, but I STILL WAS GETTING CRASHES.
Then, I had Opera GX fully crash once, and I looked at the event log. This time, I got a 1000 "Application Error" event ID:

I had a faulting module related to a program I used to access a remote desktop for my Uni. I deleted it, and have not crashed since. Somehow, Opera was interacting with a program that hadn't been used in months, and only started to interact with it upon upgrading CPUs. I could not find anything online that would have lead to this conclusion, so I am posting this here, in case anyone else happens to run into this problem. Happy Browsing!
