Vivaldi freezes on start up

  • I'm using Vivaldi on two Windows 10 machines. On both I'm on the latest stable version. Both machines have broadly the same configuration and extensions. On one of them, for the last month or two Vivaldi always freezes and becomes unresponsive for 1-2 minutes shortly after starting. Once it unfreezes it's fine - it seems to be purely a problem on (or shortly after) startup. I've tried disabling all browser extensions and clearing the download queue with no luck.

    This is becoming quite frustrating, and I haven't had any similar problems on my other machine. Vivaldi is my preferred browser, so if anyone can suggest how to fix this I'd be very grateful. Thanks.
