    Microsoft Edge on or off?

    I just installed latest version of CCleaner. When I run it asks to turn off MS Edge! Edge was not running to my knowledge. Does it run in background? I did a start up of computer (after shutting down) and then copied CCleaner from USB stick to desktop and installed. No other programs were opened.

    Anyone know what is happening?

    I would like to know what causes that too.
    I have Ccleaner and I also do not use Edge, and I don't have Ccleaner asking me to turn off Edge.

    Have you tried blocking it from running in the background and then tried

    Settings, Privacy, Background Apps - Turn off Microsoft Edge

    Hi paulsalter,

    Yes, Edge was running in background, as some of other applications that i don´t use. I had disabled some of them, but when i updated W10 to another build, automatically the O.S just enabled the apps again.
    Thanks. I just did that and it worked.

    Thanks again!
