    Weird mine installed in "Program Files (x86)" too, but I'm glad I'm not alone on this.

    Question: Every hour on the dot...

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\EdgeUpdate\MicrosoftEdgeUpdate.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\EdgeUpdate\1.3.117.29\MicrosoftEdgeUpdateBroker.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\EdgeUpdate\1.3.117.29\MicrosoftEdgeUpdateOnDemand.exe

    These 3 programs run,,. probably looking for updates or whatever, I have no plans on switching from Firefox so I don't want these to run period, I have them blocked in my Firewall, but they'll still run on the hour every hour. How can I make them stop? I have these 3 services also disabled...

    MicrosoftEdgeElevationService
    Microsoft Edge Update Service (edgeupdate)
    Microsoft Edge Update Service (edgeupdatem)

    But this does not help my issue. I'm about to just rename this "EdgeUpdate" folder unless someone here got any ideas...

    EDIT: I'll add that you can witness these events from the log file located at "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\EdgeUpdate\Log\MicrosoftEdgeUpdate.log"
    Look in Task Scheduler job tasks, may be there. Disable it or delete. I installed it, but uninstalled it, so can't look.

    New Edge has the ability to make shortcuts on the taskbar.

    Looks like these may have something to do with it.

    Interesting...

    On 3 other systems of mine, WU is not pushing it out now.
    Am I the only one?

    You have to go to the link in the first post and download it at the moment. Watch out though because there was a problem with the site detecting your language and giving random choices.

    Fixed I think. I installed the stable one 7 hours ago and it is in English.

    I downloaded it from their website (having not received it in windows update) from what i read, as far as getting by windows update, they are sending it out a bit at a time and it could take up to several months before everyone would get it on the updates...so if you don't see it in your updates and want it right now, you will need to download from the website...

    Took me a couple of tries before I got UK English yesterday. Saw a tweet that they were investigating.
