    Windows update issue +Microsoft Edge adblocker greyed out


    Hi I have been trying to install a plugin for Microsoft edge but looks like you have to download it through the store.
    when I find it on the windows store the free download button is greyed out in both????

    I can download other stuff from there and the button is not greyed out so I am not sure why?

    I was thinking I needed a windows update from what the main website for the plugin say "Microsoft Edge requires Windows 10 Anniversary Update"

    so I open windows update but it sits there for ages checking for windows updates then says there was a problem and gives a retry button that doesn't do anything.

    I have run the troubleshooter for windows updates and even though it said it has fixed an issue it still doesn't work.



    I have an acer W510 windows 32bit tablet
    I had done an upgrade from 8.1 to 10 and had problems so I have fully reformatted it with a clean install and starting to have problems again. id rather not have to fully reformat it again!
    I rarely use the tablet so unsure why I keep having so many issues!


    TLDR
    is there some sort of magic fix for windows update.
    can I install the plugin for edge
    can I do it with reformatting!

Just wondering if there is a Adblock software that can be trusted for Windows Edge? I'd like something that can take ads from Youtube too. Adblock Plus was perfect but they don't have one released yet for the Edge browser. -thanks
