    Opera browser
    « on: April 22, 2017, 09:58:10 PM »
    I tried Opera browser some long time ago.  When I use CCleaner, Opera shows up as one of the browsers, but I am darned if I can locate it on the pc.   Does it hide itself somewhere?   Is there anyway at all I can locate it and ditch it for good?

    There may be remnants of Opera in the registry which CCleaner may be reporting to you.

      If you want to make for you a little batch to scan and query your registry for a specific word like "opera"  ::)

        Don't suggest registry patches here without clear info on backing up the registry no matter how good you are at batch...

        Thanx.

            Thanx.
            I didn't say that i will share something that will make change to the registry, i just say to query this means read only without changing anything, so it is safe.
            but anyway if the OP doesn't want it, i will not share it !
            So, you can mark it as solved since the OP asked you that it is solved by him self ;)
            Thank you !

              No need to worry any more - the computer has been re-set.

              Thanks everyone.
