  2. Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3074678) - Error 0x80004005

    It will recognise email links if Edge is my default browser but not if it's Chrome. Suspect that this may be Microsoft favouring it's own ;-)

    Cookies on edge browser.

    I am thinking that the edge browser is the worse I have ever come across.Since upgrading my PC to windows 10 I have been unable to do normal functions because of the edge browser restrictions.It is a good job I own an Apple iPad to be able to continue
    with my life.

    Edge browser owns my laptop

    Hi grandpa1948!

    How are you trying to launch other browsers? Did you install them? What errors do you get?

    Download Firefox from Mozzila page. You can also install portable browsers.

    Also try installing browser in new user account.
    If there are errors, the cause may be malware or corrupted system files. Check system by typing "sfc /scannow" in admin command prompt.
