Opera not responding

  TN 16:26 13 Sep 2008

I am using Opera v 9.52 and have never had any problems with Opera previously. However every 60 to 90 seconds Opera locks and shows 'not responding' on the title line. It stays like this for anything up to 2 minutes, then starts again for another minute or so and repeats the whole process. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing with the samje result. I am running Windows XP Home edition, with 1 GB memory. The computer is checked daily for nasties with two programmes. BTW it has locked twice during the typing of this question. Any help sincerely appreciated. I have also tried System Restore but cannot get back to any previous checkpoint.

Might be worth removing and Opera and then re-installing it.

As Sea Urchin but try uninstalling with Revo, click here . Reboot and try re-installing.

Thanks to both of you - as I said above I had uninstalled and re-installed twice but on rdave13's suggestion I downloaded the Revo programme (which I had never heard of previously) and ran it! Amazingly all is 100%. There must have been something left after each uninstall that Revo has found and kicked into touch! Thanks to both of you for your time and energy - this makes browsing what it should be like.
