You can, it's what I do when I "uninstall" some Opera version (I have
many installed). The route through add/remove programs is also there as
it is the method most users would use.
Apart from the needed info for add/remove to work the registry usually
also contains pointers to Opera as the default handler for various
protocols and/or file formats, but that's about it.
