Hello,

As mentioned in the topic title, my opera (version 9.64, vista 32-bit on a Dell laptop) is constantly freezing, and needs a restart to become usable again.

This happens randomly every time I use the program, usually after an hour or so. The program cannot be closed on the desktop, and the program/process can't be ended in the task manager either. Only a restart works. Whats odd is that the restart takes about three times longer after Opera freezes.

I know that Opera has problems with very long web addresses, but this problem occurs randomly, regardless of what I'm surfing. I've done complete system scans with all the major virus/malware scanners, and come up clean.

I'd really appreciate some help on this, as I've heard that many vista users have the same problem. Thanks.

I am running Vista x32 with opera 9.64 - nothing bad ever happened to me with the browser...
Only I have to ask if you ever considered to clean install the browser again. It's what I would recommend! I am waiting for your reply, good luck :thumbsup:

In all, I did an Opera profile delete, then a clean reinstall and I even did a full vista reinstall while I had the problem. Nothing seemed to work. However, I switched my firewall from Zonealarm to Comodo, and my browser to Firefox, and haven't had any problems with browsing in about three days.

I think that opera simply has problems with Vista, or possibly with Zonealarm.
