    Hello again,
    This is the same subject I brought up before and it is now reoccurring. Even though I used Opera 10 for a day or two many months ago, unistalling it and removing the folder in programs along with any folders in each user's application data, and have done CCleaner, Advanced System Care, Commodo FW a zillion times in between along with a deep registry scan. I still occasionally see that CCleaner when I do a clean, shows Opera data being removed, it is checked in the applications section, although I do not use or have it on my system.
    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Opera leaves a lot of things behind when it's uninstalled.

    See the above link. The instructions are for an installed Opera program. You might be able to search your system for "opera" files but make sure that's what they are.

    Hello MavsX,
    Thanks for responding. At this time it is hard to tell, it flashes by very quickly and I only catch the word "Opera". Hopefully it is just something left on my system.
