Hello friends,I have never posted here before.Actually I dont post alot anywhere....Anyway,I sucessfully downloaded and used Opera 8 for a couple of months and love it.Then suddenly I tried to log on and I got the old.."Opera internet browser has a encountered a problem and needs to shut down"message.I then eliminated all traces of Opera from my files and downloaded it again and the same thing happened when I tried to open it.I have run spybot,spyware dr.,counterspy,trojan hunter,trend micro-p-cillin avg free ect....and nothing fixes it.I tried downloading Opera 7.23 without java and it worked fine,but I hate that version.I then uninstalled sun java,and reinstalled it,because I DID get a virus(which I sucessfully took care of) and I was afraid that I may have accidently deleted a piece of sun java while getting rid of the virus and screwed up the registry.Any suggestions???? I really prefer the Opera browser.* :tazz:

Sounds like a registry entry has been modified or deleted. Those viruses suck!

Did you take a snap shot of your registry after you installed the Opera browser. I do this, when all things are working well incase something like this happens.

For example, I had a dialer virus on my wifes computer, I deleted that sucker, it deleted a registry file that made it possible to maintain my internet connection. I then went to my registry back up file and executed the reg file. It restored my registry back to normal, and I was able to gain access back to the internet.

Good Luck
