    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.

    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.
