AppData is the default location, by which it installs just for the current user. You can click the Advanced button and choose to install for all users as well as change the location.

One learns something new every day.  Thank you for that info.  Just looked and found I did the same thing with Opera when I installed it so I moved it to c:\program files also.  Again WRSA automatically added it to the identity shield screen.  We keep going this thread may never die (lol)

Now that this is done on my part, time to uninstall Vivaldi as I find it nothing special and don't need it.

Hi Daniel

 

Did a thorough uninstall of Vivaldi using Revo...boy, does it leave a lot of debris behind. Smiley Frustrated

 

Then reinstalled it base don what yo usuggested...and nothing. Left it for a while and still nothinig. Rebooted, tried Vivaldi again...and low & behold...a padlock. So why it needed a reboot I really do not know...but there you go.

 

So thanks for the tip...that is now sorted.

 

Regards, Baldrick

Re: identiy shield question

You are right about Vivaldi uninstall leaving a lot of debris behind.  I used CCleaner and then went in and deleted the leftover folders.  I was able to backup my profile folder prior to  uninstalling.  If all is well do you think we can put this thread to bed although I did learn something which is good.  Thanks to all who jumped in.
