VIVALDIA - on windows 8 - Drive runs at 100%

  • i have tested Vivaldia on javascript heavy websites and this browser kicks all others BUTTS !!! it processes the pages much faster than them all ( I have tested opera / chrome / edge/ IE ).... AWSOME JOB... BUT !!!!!!! I have Vivaldia running on my windows 8 64bit box. Multiple tabs at the same time. Anytime I have the browser open it pegs the drive resources at 100%. I have tested it multiple times and watched my pc with and without it running and Vivaldi is the problem. Even if i close the browser it seems the process does not exit all the way and I have to open the task manager to kill the task. As soon as i do the the drive process goes back down to about 5 to 3% Please fix this. What are you doing on my computer ? Scanning my hard drive? This is insane....

    Your problem is a typical bug of Windows 8.
