    Edge browser shuts down on loading anything

    Just completed a clean install of TH2 (1511) on a Lenovo Via Nano-based netbook (blow, fan, blow...) prevously running Win7, activated using previous credentials via the genuineticket.xml method. The ISO source is the same one that I have used on several other machines without problems.

    After installing the OEM (Win7) drivers and going online to activate, I launched Edge to download Classic Shell. It started up with two tabs - one MSN, the other the "Start" tab. Each lingered for a few seconds, and then displayed the canned "this page is having a problem loading". Each tab then closes and the browser shuts down. Even using Edge as a PDF reader produces the same scenario.

    Internet Explorer functions normally, and so I set it to the default browser for now.

    Possible solutions I have tried, gleaned from various net searches, without resolution:
    1. Create a new user profile and attempt to launch browser when logged in from that account.
    2. system file checker (no problems)
    3. dism ... /scanhealth and /restorehealth. No component store corruption found, restore completed normally.
    4. Delete the Edge app package folder from localappdata and reinstall Edge from powershell script
    5. Turn off flash support in the Edge advanced settings (using the 3 second time window that the browser actually stays running)
    6. Downloaded and installed all Windows updates as of today.
    7. chkdsk /f ... no problems
    8. Drivers .... see below

    Just now I tried to load a PDF file using Edge, and after the crash checked the event log. It finds a crash in Microsoftedgecp.exe, event ID 1000, faulting module KERNELBASE.DLL

    The only other issue that my workflow would have missed, is if one of the Lenovo Win7 drivers is the problem; but it's too late for that now. I have searched for newer MS drivers for each component using Device Manager, and there are none. I have also terminated the control panel and helper apps for the Lenovo Power Management, VIA Chome9 display, keyboard shortcuts, Synaptics touchpad, and Realtek HD audio without resolving the problem.

    Any suggestions?
