    The next step would be the obvious for simply nuking the present account you are having the problem with and see if creating the same account only brand new will solve the problem.
    I already marked this solved with the solution, thanks anyways.

    This problem re-occurred and at the same time Edge started freezing when opening some new pages.

    In case it is of use to someone else it can be resolved by deleting the following file (instead of creating new user):

    %USERPROFILE%\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\counters.dat

    As counters.dat is locked need to change the value of the key Cache at "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders" to something else, reboot, delete the INetCache folder and then change the key back. The folder is recreated automatically in the location specified on the key.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    I was having the same problem you posted in the original message, evidently because I changed a user's username and folder name. It's weird that this would cause that problem, but it's solved now thanks to you!!!

    Incidentally, I logged out of the account I was having problems with, logged into my account and deleted the folder from there rather than messing with the registry. It work just as well.

    Again, thank you!

    You are right - deleting it is easier. It seems to break for me every few weeks and I'm not sure what I do to cause it. Deleting the INetCache folder from another account is quick and easy fix.
