    only on HTTP websites. All with HTTPS still works fine in Edge.

    what kind of malware is this? ADWcleaner and malware bytes found nothing....



    its a not-so-fresh install of W10 (fresh installed yesterday with only a few apps), no extension, no cats (yet).

    soooo weird. Did you download the latest ISO? (I shared an ISO here time ago with a preactivated key but the message got deleted, it works very well, it's from the latest big update). Regardless, Edge is not that bad but there is a lot of room for improvement, random hangs are not unusual. I suspect memory issues if you are low on memory that cause the program to crush at times, if you use a PC with 4G or less RAM, but that shouldn't happen.

    My Bing history contains exactly:
    Bing searches for Intel, Gigabyte (mobo), Windows 10 August update (which didn't initially download) & HECI driver (which didn't install correctly initially)
    Intel, Gigabyte, AMD, Chrome, Firefox & Microsoft download pages.

    Ah yes, I used to use that or something very similar :yes:
    But regularly reinstalling Windows has become very much a rarity now so I'd completely forgotten about it :oops:
