Hi all,
I have been using xTorrent for about 2 years without any issues until last week. I use tvshows to grab the torrents as they become available, it puts the torrents in the downloads folder and xtorrent does its thing.

However for about the past two weeks Opera opens when the torrent is downloaded now!?! It is really strange. I have selected a torrent and chosen to Open with.. which works fine when I manually select it.

Some questions:
- Has this happened to anyone else? Did you fix it
- I don't remember installing Opera, when I spotlight it all it finds is a .gif file, it isn't appearing in my applications folder.
- How can I uninstall Opera if I can't find it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers
Trent

Opera seems to be hidden inside the Adobe Suite (CS3) for me, and I haven't bothered trying to remove it. But yeah, it shows up for me when I right click on HTML Pages and select 'Open With'.

Here's a thread on Apple's discussion forums that might help - Apple - Support - Discussions - Removing Adobe's Hidden Opera Install ... (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=8384509) :)
