    Edge takes an hour or more of computer user time before it can"find a page" without having...


    When I start my PC it works just fine except for Edge. When I open in I get a message Problem loading page. This can persist for an hour or more before it finally works normally. Once it works normally it continues to work normally. Firefox, which has become my go-to browser, has no issues. Why is this happening and how can I fix it. I tried disabling Norton without any success. Also reset my start gae with no success. New tabs don't help either.

    :)
