Major issues with Opera

I've been having some multiple issues with Opera since I installed it about 3 months ago.


Opera has been becoming increasingly unstable. It's gotten to the point where Opera has been crashing *at least* once a day. Lately, it's been crashing, and then when I start it up, it crashes *again* and I have to force quit it just to get it to stop hanging.

As of today, I'm getting messages that the Opera.exe file is corrupt. I was told to run chkdsk, and I did. It said it deleted one corrupt file and then an error occurred and the chkdsk stopped during Stage 2.

It seems like Opera is impossible to get rid of, even if you uninstall it.

I would like to uninstall it and make sure it's out of my system completely. :)

Can someone give me a hand please?

Hello Lard,

if I could direct your attention to the Terms of Use.

We will not support or allow the discussion of any peer to peer (P2P) applications, except for their removal.



It is GeeksToGo policy that we do not assist any user in making P2P or file sharing programs work, we will only discuss they're removal. This is because while they have practical uses ie downloading legal files such as shareware, etc. they can also be used to download illegal files such as movies, videos, etc.

Alright.

Could you please help me with the stability issues for Opera and let me know why the chkdsk didn't finish.

I would like to uninstall Opera and make sure it's completely out of my system, which I don't think it was when I uninstalled it before.

Sorry for the problems.

How did you remove opera before?

You could try re installing and then removing Opera again.

I've tried that three times already.

It's almost like a virus, because when I reinstall Opera all my previous information, like bookmarks, are still there.

I want to make sure it's completely out of my system.

Have you also tried to remove uTorrent and see if that helps?

Have you any other browser that you can use? Why not firefox?

If you do think that it could be malware related follow all the steps HERE and post back the requested logs in our Malware Removal and Spyware Removal forum. If you have not recieved a response after 3 days then start a new thread in our Waiting Room with a link to the original topic, a brief description of the problem and the date of the original post.

I'm sure it's not Malware. It's that when I uninstall Opera, parts of it stay in the system, and I don't know how to get rid of them.

I want to remove all traces of Opera before I start installing any other browsers.

How do I do this?

Honestly not sure,

a: not anywhere near a windows system currently to check
b: not being overly familiar with opera outside of linux.

If it doesn't appear in your add/remove programs any more then you could do a search for any opera related files an folders on your system.
