    I hope somebody can help me with this, i would have done a search to see if its in a previous thread but i did'nt know what it would have been listed under.
    Here goes:
    I use opera 7 as my browser which i prefer to IE but when i go here to tech guys and click on certain threads i immediatly am back at my desktop, does anyone know why this may be ?
    I am using IE right now to be here writing this, is it something to do with my settings ?
    any help will be greatly appreciated !!!

    You mean Opera closes unexpectedly?
    Have you tried upgrading to v8.02?

    It's because you are using Opera 7, like Netscape, some sites react differently or don't display correctly. try updating your XP and using IE.
