I cannot open Opera...

  • Okay, I'll be honest: I used a flash game hacking kinda program. And I changed some figures here and there. Then opera suddenly got closed. And I can't seem to open it. There is not even an error. I tried deleting and installing again, nothing. What can I do?

  • Do you know whether it modified Opera, Flash, or just settings for either? You can of course reset your profile, or reinstalled Opera and/or Flash so I'm sure it can be fixed one way or the other.

    Hey, thanks for the reply. What did you mean by reseting my profile? I reinstalled opera but nothing seems to be changed. I don't know the answer to the first question. It probably changed something to do with flash though, since it was an app made to arrange flash games' numbers. I'm going to try reinstalling flash and come back.

  • @sgunhouse
    Did so several times, nothing happened. Resetting the profile? What does that mean?

  • @nephoes If you mean opening the program and click to "about", my opera doesn't open the slightest. I can't even detect it in activity monitor.

  • What version of Windows? On Windows 10, your profile would be at C:\Users\(your user name)\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\ - presume Windows is set to use English, some of the folder names are language dependent. And yes, you don't see any AppData folder - it is hidden. If you type it into the address bar of a file browser, it will show you the contents.

    In a worst case scenario. you could delete the entire Opera Stable folder and Opera would recreate it the next time you ran the program - but you'd lose all your bookmarks, settings, history, and so on (at least, unless you use Sync; once you enable sync you'd get anything that it had saved back).

    A better answer - if it works - is to only delete Preferences (your settings), but if some other file is damaged that may not be enough. Try this option first - if it doesn't help then you can back up your bookmarks and history then delete the entire folder, then (if Opera does work after that) see if you can restore your bookmarks and history.

  • It is mac. Isn't this subject on the mac forum? Or have I messed up?

  • Sorry, as a mod I try to look at all the (English) forums. Seems to me on a Mac you access it from the program icon, but not having one that's all I can say.
