I have been thinking about this. Maybe a BAT file could be used
which first calls up a home-made splash screen that times out
after a few seconds and meanwhile Opera is called.
If such a BAT file were turned into an EXE then it could be
renamed to replace the original OPERA.EXE and the orignal
OPERA.EXE be renamed to someting which the new program called.
My PC is not that slow (about 2000 MHz) but I think it is the disk
activity which is holding up the launch of Opera.
Maybe such a utility exists already for another program?
