i've located it and remove it already.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
what to do then?
since some sites [espn etc.]wouldn't play video unless you update. but when i try to update it would tell me to uninstall something [wasn't specified], i presume flash 15, so i disable it. i don't have any adobe flash installed other than the opera plug-in that comes with opera itself.
after being unable to update my opera 26 and unable to download opera 27, i'm now using opera 28 again. thanks for that.
i don't know what the problem with 27 is, it even crashed my laptop.
unfortunately my bookmarks were permanently gone i'm afraid, but it's good to be back
@christoph142 how do i look for the second one if any [hidden files]
recently, i've tried downloading this files codeblocks from sourceforge, vivaldi, and opera 27 all failed although i can download the installer but it won't run.
i was thinking of @sgunhouse comment "Something on your system is stopping programs it doesn't recognize from accessing the web......blocking the auto-updater and the net installer." this i felt is whats happening i just don't know how to resolve it. maybe a hidden file somewhere? like christoph142 suggest?
well if anything, i really enjoy the opera 26 and it suits all my needs so far, even so, it would've feel good to use the latest stable opera since thats what i'm use to. many thanks guys.
i'm not really good in tech stuff but this is my host file, i'm not sure
thanks sgunhouse for the quick response. unfortunately i can't download it either from the link you've given "interrupted network error". i've tried it too with another browser with the same result. to think about it, all my recent attempt at downloading other programs have failed as well, i'm really at a lost right now.
