    Microsoft Edge & Malwarebytes


    IE and Edge were being hijacked with lots of pop ups. A restore and windows defender seemed to solve the problem but then Edge started being hijacked again. I got the Malwarebytes trial and it found 69 PUP problems which are quarantined and the IE explorer works fine but all I get from Edge is Hmmmm... can't reach this page.

    I reset Edge and I still get the same. Anyway that Edge can be uninstalled and reinstalled?

    There have been issues with MB. Check this thread and others from the AV forum.

    Temporarily disable MB to see if any effect. Also run adwcleaner.

    Temporarily disabling MB solved a couple of issues for me. After re-enabling it, all works like it's supposed to. At least so far. And a +1 on the run AdwCleaner.

    I looked at Windows reset but I would need to re-install so many programs I decided against it. Instead I signed this computer up to the insider fast ring. It just finished the upgrade to 16193.1001 and Edge is working again as well as all of the tablet tiles that were not working.
