    I think I got the Opera virus (kidding) when I installed Photoshop? maybe... Its not in my applications folder either, very strange though I haven't really tried to get rid of it. Have you tried AppZapper

    Do you have Adobe Bridge installed on your Mac?

    If so, Opera is part of Bridge and is used to render the web gallery output.

    I'm not sure why it's the default however but you can change it:

    Hope this helps.

    You could also just change the default application for torrents. Right click a torrent, select Get Info, go to "Open With", change the drop down to the application of your choice, push "Change All...".
