Sorry to hear about this problem. I have had only one
problem so far with Opera. Somehow the Opera6.ini got
corrupted and no windows would open. An un/reinstall
fixed the hang up. I now have a backup copy of my
opera6.ini just incase this happens again. So far it
was just a fantom problem. Also,I have some friends as
well as my father, that run Opera6 no problems on PC.

BTW: Did you first install of the Sun Java runtime
files? They have a full insall w/Java that gives the
option to install Java runtime. This must be installed
first one time install only if you do not alreay have
them. If not installed, I am sure Opra might choke on
java applets.

Once you have installed Java runtime you wont need too
again and the installation file  Without Java is only
3.2 MB for upgrades :-).
