Running IE 6 SP2 I decided to try Opera 11 since a few sites were nattering at me about no longer supporting IE6 Yes I did try IE7 and IE8 and went back to IE6. I just cannot leave what was working until I screw it up. I did a System Restore backup point just prior to downloading but it cannot restore. I also used a registry restore program called ERDNT. It said it did restore to this morning's cold boot data but Opera still shows up on desktop icons. Opera does not show up on Add/Remove lists. The site I downloaded from was CNET and it had a green WOT symbol beside it so I have to believe someone. I just want my old system back. Anyone? teaside

I'm willing to bet that the icon is just that, an icon that doesn't work if you click it. If it doesn't work you can right click the icon and delete it.

Animal: Thanx for fast response. You are right from what I can now see. I kept getting a popup telling me to download the latest Adobe crappola and when I hit the cancel box that in turn made the desktop resemble an artsy-fartsy page taking up about 15 to 20% of the top of the screen. I seem to be back in the land of "old but good" once more. Stay tuned for at least one more update. Now I must write on the blackboard 100 times "I must not upgrade any more browsers EVER AGAIN".

FWIW I Love Opera. I started with Opera 2.0 in 1996. Glad things are working ok for you now.
