@dowder46 What about a startup log to see what is being launched?
Great ideal leo..
also check here in win 10 - Settings->Accounts->Sign-In options->Privacy : to see n e thing like this..
Make sure you have logged outta google 1st..
disconnect my Google account and clear all data from Opera (both the 32 and 64-bit versions) and either re-install a pristine default Opera or a new default profile Opera should reset everthing and then log back into google.
If its not because of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update..
and you checked these registry settings..
Then check these too.. even tho registry may be
blank.. thats because on reboot the malware deletes itself.. so it will be blank..
but go to Safemode and recheck registry again
the tricky malware commands will be exposed..
if the malware is running this way.. be worth a look..if not no harm done..
@burnout426 This may be a stretch *long shot since a win 10 update.. - The answer may be in Cortana settings .Open Cortana then go to the" pick up where I left off" and toggle that to off then save the settings. lol

chome has this flag - chrome://flags and disable
Enable Push API background mode..
to sleepy to see if opera does..
go to settings and turn off run apps in the background.. restarted pc *may help..
or i may be confused with google chrome..
it may be called this now.. Background sync - Do not allow recently closed sites to finish sending and receiving data
also look in here.. *Opened Run (Windows key + R) and typed in: shell:startup remove opera if its in there restart pc..
also i found this thread explaining that this is not an issue but a new Feature of Windows 10
+Programs autostart after boot+ - https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_desktop/programs-autostart-after-boot-in-windows-10/09dd8d3e-7b36-45d1-9181-6587dd5d53ab?page=2
