Opera Uninstall


M

Me2Ewe

I need some help I am trying to uninstall Opera Browser. I deleted it out of
the Add/Remove and out of everywhere I can see, but when I try to open
programs it says it cannot initialize Opera. It will not use Internet
Explorer.
Any Ideas?
Thanks Bruce

Scan your Registry with the jv16 Power Tools
(http://www.macecraft.com/) or with Easy Cleaner
(http://www.toniarts.com) and remove all references to Opera.
In the Control Panel > Add and remove Programs > Set Program Access
and Defaults turn off Opera and turn on the IE.

Bruce,

If you're looking for EasyCleaner, here is the actuall link for Toni's
site...

Official ToniArts software pages
http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/ecleane.htm

The one that (tm) posted is *not* Toni's.

[[Important notice
http://www.toniarts.com is no longer my web site, my web site now and in the
future will be this (http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts).
http://www.toniarts.com is just cheating people for money, I've asked them
to stop, repeatedly, with no luck. To get those auto-updates working on my
programs you need to change the update URL from the options. Instead of
http://www.toniarts.com/EasyCleaner.ini use
http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/EasyCleaner.ini. ]]
