  • SO right now i am in China and download some Chinese programs that i use (Youku , qq and wechat )
    and after that i setup opera browser so i found that baidu get default search engine in speed dial without my permission i think it's virus so i uninstalled opera browser and installed it again but it's still there stuck to speed dail search
    with out speed dial for Chinese website after that i tried to remove with ( Anvi Smart Defender , Malwarebytes Anti-Malware , SpyHunter ) but nothing happend and it's still there and i tried to change default search engine from Google(default) to other one then get it back again to Google but nothing change
    so any advise here to get this off opera browser it's so annoying and i'am afraid from these Chinese search engine stealing data or spying my pc and right now i am windows 10 user
    (Sorry for my English )

  • Since you were in China it configured with the Chinese search engines and speed dials. You either need to delete the file "Local State" from your Profile folder (see About Opera for the location of your Profile) or alternatively edit it by hand to change the locale.

  • Test with Malwarebytes-other tools, Junkware Removal Tool

  • thanks guys for your answers i tried to clean profile and also use Junkware Removal Tool
    but the problem still there
    i couldn't find local State and how i can changed it manually

  • how i can changed it manually

    Open it in a editor and find the following lines:

    "location":{"country":"br","country_from_server":"BR"

    Then change the country code to the one you want.

  • Open it in a editor and find the following lines:

    "location":{"country":"br","country_from_server":"BR"

    Then change the country code to the one you want.

    Sorry open what file and how open it with editor

  • Look at About Opera and find where it says your profile is stored. Open Windows Explorer or another file manager and go to that folder (it is probably easiest to copy it from Opera and paste it into Explorer as some of the folders may be hidden by default) and find the file "Local State" (yes, it is there). Deleting it would delete some of your other settings too so I prefer to edit it - just select Open then choose Notepad or another editor.

  • thanks a lot i found local state and delete and now speed dial search engine back to be Google again :)
