    Microsoft Edge


    Hello,
    Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10, Internet Explorer has apparently been replaced by Microsoft Edge. I experience difficulty with this new browser, in that it signals security problems for about every second website I want to go to - even absolutely reliable ones. If I click on the "continue anyway" button, nothing happens but the security warning reappearing. This blocks my access even to websites I need for professional use. Does anyone know how to get rid of this problem?
    thank you

    Internet explorer is still installed, just use that instead.

    Thank you. I just tried to do so. The problem seems not to reside in the browser, for with Internet Explorer exactly the same happens.

    Just a suggestion :

    Open IE11 > click Tools at the top > click SmartScreen Filter > click Turn off SmartScreen Filter.

    Wonder if that will help.

    *** adding ............... make sure IE11 is set as your default browser ***

    Create another user account with exactly the same privileges as this one you are using > logon to it > set IE11 as default.
    Is the same issue persisting ?

    It would be easier to find a solution for you, if you provide a bit more information. What antivirus solution do you use, firewall DNS etc.

    Your description make me think off Norton / Symantec internet security and possible to strict settings of certificate checking.

    I think that's a likely cause too. But I don't think it's due to "too strict settings of certificate checking", more like third-party security software acting like it's a Certificate Authority issuing it's own certificate so it can MITM secure connections and may or may not be doing proper certificate checking like a browser would to see if the actual site certificate is valid, expired, revolked, etc.

    Thank you for your replies. Meanwhile, I have discovered many, many other quite unnerving malfunctions.

    It becomes increasingly clear I have to resort to a professional to clean up this mess. An assistant of mine told me today she spent more on downgrading back to Windows 7 than would have cost her a new personal computer. As you may have guessed, my expertise in computer science is indeed limited. However, I believe they have quite a nerve at Microsoft to launch such an immature product on the market.
