    I have used IE for years. Edge works well but again, am used to IE. .
    That's exactly the way I feel. When I get used to something it's hard for me to change. But, I'm giving Edge another shot. I suppose I can get used to it as I did to IE.

    Are you using add-ons such as WOT(Web Of Trust) and/or Adblock plus? Neither have been properly upgraded 8not to be confused with updated) for IE11 and cause crashes. If you have them try disabling them for a couple of days. In addition to/even if you don't have->First backup or write down all your site passwords then > Go to gear icon> Internet options>Advanced Tab and reset IE >also if you have CCleaner clean EVERYTHING(we're trying to totally reset to a fresh slate)
    also clean out your DNS cache.
    I am using Spybot Search and Destroy. Does this pose a problem? I have used in for many years - including on IE 11 in Windows 8.1 without issues. But then we are in a new system with different issues.

    Spybot creates an extensive host file (can't remember, but believe it's an option). This may create problems when the DNS Client service is running. I've used Host files in the past, and best results were obtained by disabling the DNS client. But if it was me, I'd nix spybot, and delete its host file entries.

    Good idea to troubleshoot.
