    Microsoft Edge crashing upon opening

    Hello all,
    I have here a laptop that is not working with Edge, however other browsers are usable.
    Upon opening Edge it will stop working, due to this the menu is unusable for settings. I have already taken steps to rectify this issue, though, it has not worked. The steps that I have taken are:
    1. Delete the package in App data, and reloaded it with PowerShell
    2. Make a new user and test the program, Issue happens with the alternate user.
    3. Reset the program in apps.
    4. Repaired the program in apps.
    Any help is appreciated, TIA

    Have you ran a system scan with your AV ?

    If Edge can't be repaired or reset, consider doing a System Restore or Reset of Win10.

    Also, others had this issue due to a Windows Update. Check below threads.

    We had further issues for this, Norton caused a ruckus with Edge, after removing this however, Edge started working fully functional.
