  1. Browser hijack


    Hi whenever I open a page from within an app my default browser which is almost advert free is bypassed and microsofts advert fest Edge is used instead. Edge is pretty much unusable to me as I despise being forced to view adverts also I dislike the search engine which I have been unable to remove for the far less advert seeking google search engine .I am using a fully updated win 10 installation thanks for any help.

    :)

    I've removed viruses using Avast & Malwarebytes but still get browser redirects when trying to go to any Microsoft sites or update page. Any suggestions?
