Hi, i’m new here but i’m using cis for a long time. The problem i have is that, in widget browser window, there are browser icons, i have removed opera but that icon is still there…how can i remove that icon?
Ah, I believe CIS gets browsers from registry keys, I think they have been posted somewhere before, I will try and see if I can find the post saying which keys.
I’m guessing there was a registry key that wasn’t removed when you un-installed opera.
Hmm =/ Then I have no idea, perhaps you could re-install Opera and then un-install it again, it could possibly remove some file that was not removed the last time.
If that doesn’t work then I don’t know what to do and you’d have to wait for someone else to help you.
Right now, I have no idea. For me, uninstalling Opera removes the option from the widget. Alternatively, if I leave Opera installed but delete the keys mentioned above, it removes the item from the widget.
i have tryed with ice dragon, removed him and icon was still there, but when i deleted folder in registry from this location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet, the icon gone from widget…only opera i can not find…can you tell me, how did you removed opera? from cpanel or some other option? oh i forgot to say, os is win8…
Apologies for not asking your OS version earlier.
I have worked out the commands to remove them from Win 7 in case they were not visible for some reason.
I am running blind now as I do not have Win 8, sorry.
Radaghast thanks greatly for all your time and effort.
I’ve had a look at Windows 8 and not surprisingly, the behaviour is the same. Removing Opera from Programs and Features also removes the Opera icon from the widget. Likewise, leaving Opera installed and deleting the appropriate key for x86/x64 also removes the icon form the widget.
