Which Opera version? Did you use it for a long time and it went slower?

Generally, many bookmarks may slow down Oprahs startup time and resident antivirus scanners with certain settings or firewalls are known to do that (in some cases), too. Sometimes the Opera6ini is junked or the cache / page history settings are wrong.

Ok, thanks. Did you make an upgrade install over an old 8.x version? This is not recommended with 9.01. Do a clean install. Otherwise read this (especially if you use NOD32):

There are some hints on Opera startup problems. If nothing helps, delete the opera6.ini in your profile folder (backup your old one before deleting) - Opera will rebuild it and you loose your settings, but maybe it helps.
