Hello everyone. This bizarre event is not happening when only using Opera, but the one instance is always there, even when I exit the program (the second one goes away). What is more puzzling is that even after reboot I can still see Opera.exe in task mgr (which always takes about 7 megs). When I kill it, it goes away and doesn't return, without problems. But this question simply puzzles me, although it doesn't seem to impact any functionality. BTW, I just got me a brand new PC a few days ago , and decided to switch to Opera from FF. So the HD is formatted a few days ago. And yes, I have tried Opera forums first, and saw a couple of threads there http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=173207 and http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=173439 dealing with the same issue, but without a satisfactory conclusion (or any, to be more precise). So I just thought to ask this, in my opinion, highly esteemed community for any thoughts on this matter. Thanks for any posible replies in advance, The Seer.
