My Opera

What is My Opera?

Opera Widgets are small standalone applications sitting on the desktop that use the browser's rendering engine.


My Opera is a software program developed by Opera Widgets. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named My Opera.exe. The setup package generally installs about 2 files and is usually about 1.13 MB (1,187,946 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 36% of users of My Opera come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.
