    Doesn't Opera come with a "preloader" of some sort to make it seem like Opera launches faster or as fast as IE ?

    Do you use any of those Opera widgets?

    There is also a chance that some malware is masquerading as Opera. Use some advanced task manager like Process Explorer to see exactly what kind of opera.exe instances you have running.

    I've checked on msconfig and theres nothin there about it, i do use feeds but not the widgets. an the feeds only work when opera is open. dont think its got a preloader cos i never saw anythin about it when i went to the site.

    You`re quite right, nothing wrong there.

    The only reason I wanted to look at your HJT log was to try and see if I could find out where Opera was running from, but no luck.

    I agree with Nodsu, you should try the Process explorer programme. You can get it HERE.

    Regards Howard :)

    I usually use msconfig or services.msc, it tells you everythin thats running
