Opera9.exe Kills Battery

I have MR 4.7 and several others have reported it killing battery life. Any ideas how to make it not load on startup?

Have you tried Calcu opera real exit cab. here it is: hope it works

By the way, I think you will need to open opera after startup and then close it for opera9 to exit. so in essence, this probably is not what you are looking for...

Re: Opera9.exe Kills Battery

My problem is album searcher.exe its draining my battery badly, i don't know how i even executed it and i need to kill it every time, for my battery to operate normally within hours vs minutes to drain. My battery monitor shows a major difference!

You might not be aware, but MSR4.8 is out. Maybe this new version fixed it? To answer your question, go to \Windows\StartUp and remove Opera9.exe from there. Don't know if it returns after a soft reset though, so try it out.

Re: Opera9.exe Kills Battery

Weird, I could swear I saw it there. But then, the registry thing you pointed out makes sense. Maybe the registry is the dad that belts out new "clones" everytime we delete Opera9.exe from the Startup, lol

By the way, I think you will need to open opera after startup and then close it for opera9 to exit. so in essence, this probably is not what you are looking for...
The setting in that cab is already the default in some ROMs (I had it set that way in the leaked AT&T Fuze ROM). This prevents it from lingering when closed but not running at startup in the background (I have that setting and I notice it is running on a fresh soft reset). To eliminate you need to eliminate operaL.exe (or rename it to operaL-.exe) BUT that results in the TF3D tab no longer working as well as other shortcuts to opera. If you don't use Opera then this probably isn't a problem but if you are an opera user then you won't be happy...
