Vivaldi doesn't load in windows 10
I am using Vivaldi long time now and day before yesterday it did not load. I opened task manager and there were the Vivaldi instances that it always opens but I did not have any window. It loaded in Task manager but not on my scree. I copied all my info from the default folder, uninstalled and installed again. It worked one and that happened again. I uninstalled and installed again but If this happens again, How to I fix it, or what should I do so it doesn't happen again.
I thank you very much.
that's strange... do you use any 3rd party security software? some could block vivaldi. Are you a windows insider? (alpha/beta versions)
One thing you could try:
start > write
run> enter > then write
taskkill /f /im vivaldi.exeas command (it will force close any background/foreground vivaldi process)
- launch again.
- install as standalone in a path like c:\vivaldi.
- install snapshot if you used stable (or viceversa).
- disable background apps at exit if it is working
chrome://settings/?search=background(paste in urlbar+enter)
Next time delete all these files in your browser profile folder:
That will let you lose you sessions but start Vivaldi.
And try to disable a internal setting:
- Disable Continue running background apps when Vivaldi is closed
- Restart Vivaldi
Same here, from last night it's almost impossible to start vivaldi, and even if after 20 tries will start it will crash after seconds. I didn't change anything on my pc to affect vivaldi, maybe some windows update but i'm not sure. Really strange.
From the debug.log:

@larmaanidis What happens if you rename the "Default" folder?
I use Iobit malware fighter, but I always used it and I never had a problem. I do not use Insider. It worked fine and the next day it didn't. No massages of any error. I have reinstaled and it is working now but if it happens I will try your suggestion.
