I've been running Opera since 3.x when it didn't even fill a 3.5" floppy and have benn well satisfied. Recently, however (actually some months ago) I have run into a problem which may or may not have to do with the browser itself. When I bring up Opera I get an error message "Authentication failed for email@example.com --- The server responded: invalid user name or password" The browser then continues to function fine except that the same error message pops up at various times. I then hit cancel (in the error message box), the box closes, and everything woks fine until the next time it pops up.
I have tried to reset my user name and password many times. I have tried to get help from Opera (who refer me to Cox) and from Cox (who refer me to Opera). I have tried to upgrade to Opera 11 (this all began while I was still in 10) with success loading the later version, but the error message, etc, continues. I have tried to uninstall Opera in hopes that a fresh install would solve the problem, but I can't get Opera to uninstall either via Windows (7) or Revo.
Any help would be appreciated as this is an annoying condition.
BTW this problem is only with Opera--- Firefox, Chrome, IE all work fine with no pop up.
