Opera wont close

  • Am trying to use CCleaner to clear but it says Opera wont close. Force closing does not work. Any suggestions?

  • @acdc What do you mean by won't close? Opera doesn't close at all? It closes but keeping running in background?

  • CCleaner says that for it to clean, Opera needs to close, even though I have closed it. Gives me the option of force closing it, but that takes hours (waiting for 1.5 hours to no avail) Looks like Opera keeps running in the background.

  • Before you use CCleaner, look in Windows Task Manager after you've "closed" Opera to see if an Opera task is still running. If so, force-close it via Task Manager and reopen Opera; then try disabling Opera's extensions to see if one of them is failing to close, as shown in Task Manager. If/when Opera's tasks are all closed as seen in Task Manager, then try running CCleaner to see what happens.

  • No Opera extensions, etc are running as per task manager. Cant even uninstall as it is "still running".

  • @acdc In Windows Task Manager, can you identify the Opera processes that are still running after you close Opera? If so, then manually right-click each one in Task Manager to "End Task". That should kill the processes so you can at least uninstall.
