I recently installed opera 11. I chose my web pages stored in my system to open up with opera but now no icon image comes with it. I mean the icon image is default as in when the system doesn't know with which application to open. Can anyone help me with it. It doesn't look good.

There's a problem with the icon for HTM/HTML-Pages if you have installed Opera and Microsoft Office. To solve this issue you have to delete the registry key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Opera.HTML using regedit and then reinstall Opera:

a. Open Start menu and enter regedit the start regedit.exe (if you are using Windows XP click "Run..." and type regedit.exe):

b. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Opera.HTML

c. Select the key and delete it.

d. Reinstall Opera.

I did the same thing, except that instead of Step d., I used a software that can restore the icon, without reinstalling Opera. (Link to related post in the Opera forums) – galacticninja Jun 10 '11 at 14:53
