Directory Opus has been unstable every day forcing me to restart often

Lately OP 12.12 has become unstable. It works for a few minutes and then it becomes unstable. I have to restart multiple times every day. My favorites shortcuts don't work anymore. I can't navigate to folders. After I close OP, I get the window shown below. This confirms that OP is not stable. I uninstalled OP. Deleted the folder, restarted Windows and reinstalled it. Restored my settings. Same problem.

If it's a bug in Opus, we should be able to provide a workaround in the short term and a fix in the next update.

For problems caused by shell extensions, these two guides can also help:
