Windows 10: Microsoft Edge on or off? Solved

    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?

    Weird.
    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.

    I'm using CCleaner too and I recognized the same thing. I don´t use Edge at all btw.

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

    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!
