Specs: Windows 7
Opera won't uninstall on my computer. It is listed in P & F but when I click on it to uninstall it just sits there and refuses to leave. Any ideas why?

Does Opera work? Sometimes improper un-installation can result in a corrupt or partially removed program that still shows in Programs and Features.

If you have CCleaner installed try looking to see if Opera is listed there under> Tools/Uninstall.

You could also run the registry cleaner in CCleaner.

✔ Best Answer
Another thing you could try would be to reinstall Opera; that might fix any problems due to failed uninstall attempts. Reboot, then try to uninstall again.

I've been having trouble with Opera working correctly - some pages would not load correctly. I thought if I could uninstall it and then reinstall it that might change.

Thank you riider for the suggestion to simply try reinstalling it (even though it would not uninstall). I tried that and now the kinks seem to be gone. Appreciate the answers on here!!

If you had posted that you wanted to keep Opera the advice might have been different.

It is common that some pages do not load or behave erratically in one browser but loads OK in other browser. At the moment I use Firefox and Chrome side by side. IE11 lately shows a lot of problems with (news) websites locking up periodically scrolling through web-pages.

Sorry OtherHill, I'm new at this ... I don't know what CCleaner is so decided to try the other advice first. Since that seemed to solve the problem I didn't pursue what you said, but appreciate that you took the time to answer! Thank you!

Yes, sluc, I have 3 browsers running for various uses but mostly use Opera - until it started acting up. I use Firefox, Aviator and Opera. IE seems to be screwy more often than not and I avoid Chrome for personal reasons. Anyway, good to hear what folks have to say on here!

I suggest you download and use CCleaner. Myself and many regulars here use CCleaner on a regular basis. The CLEANER module is very useful for removing temporary files and other unwanted items left from internet usage. Get CCleaner from the link below.
