Cannot uninstall Opera completely

Hello SF.

I am having problems of killing Opera from my laptop.
I uninstalled it, and deleted the folder for it in program files. But somehow it is still showing in the 'Uninstall programs' list. And when i try to uninstall it this happens:

sergiogarcia9, boot into safe mode then un-hide all folders and files. Follow the path to the application and see if you can delete it.

Tried that, didnt work

And what do you mean by path? Is it the folder of the application? :S

If it happens again, and you know you have uninstalled the program but you still see it listed, you can the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility. Also. CCleaner has a section that will remove entries from that list too - but again, it should only be used if you have uninstalled the program, but it is still listed.
