While upgrading Opera 20.x to 21.x with internal update that program itself offered, 20.x old files remained and PSI had detected them.

Complete uninstall of Opera 21.x on Windows 7 did not remove this issue. Opera had left a load of junk files from various versions.

PSI could exercise correct behavior IMHO if it just recognized this was a zombie installation instead of actual installation, instead of offering "install solution" link to re-upgrade just upgraded Opera browser.

This would be in accord to what PSI does with Google Chrome.

My $0.02.
