    Edge disappeared and no cumulative updates are performed


    I uninstalled Edge browser with a script. After this I can't install cumulative updates.


    So I tried to install it back again using a script in PowerShell, but it doesn't work.

    As a last resort I created an installation media and performed a clean install. To my surprise it didn't install Edge browser, I really don't know why because this was a clean install. Could it be that the installation media when being created sensed that Edge wasn't on my system and somehow didn't include it?


    I have tried all ways to install these updates, offline file update, cleaning the update folder, resetting the update services, renaming the folders as described by other tutorials, still my updates fail. I think I have broken my Windows and will never be able to install updates.


    I don't know if creating an installation media for Windows 10 May 2019 Update and installing it through a USB will get me the latest cumulative updates and maybe bring back Edge back. But I really don't know since the clean install didn't do anything to solve the Edge disappearance issue.


    I even installed the BETA Edge browser, but still can't install cumulative updates.

    :)

    Performance issues related to Microsoft Edge

    Yes, I meant Microsoft Edge will not open after todays update. I tried every step and procedure you listed above, but none of them resolved the issue. Update history reports the update was installed successfully. I could not perform method 2 listed above
    as Edge will not open. it appears for approximately 2 seconds with its blue start page, then disappears.
