    Frequent Edge Content Process Crashes


    Hello,

    For some reason, when checking the Reliability Graph, it shows a lot of crashes of the Microsoft Edge Content Process. I have no idea what triggers this. Here's the log (Dutch):

    I'm running Windows 10 Pro x64 with the Fall Creators Update. I do notice that this problem is occurring since I have cleanly installed the Fall Creators Update. I have attached the dump file. Doing an "sfc/ scannow" doesn't show any problems.

    What might be the cause of this and how do I fix it?

    :)

  3. multiple MS Edge & MS Edge Content Process running, memory warning.

    As I look at Task Manager, there are 3 separate entries for Microsoft Edge in Task Manager. There also used to be 2 separate MS Edge Content Process. I've started nothing else since I restarted the computer, There was a memory warning saying to close
    programs to free up memory, but I've started nothing else but Edge, which has been running for the past 4 hours. I clicked on "End Task" for all MS Edge listings. After a couple of times MS Edge Content Process hasn't returned. Even though I did the same
    for all the Edge entries, it's still open, and all MS Edge listings keep returning. 10 minutes later, one 'Edge is using 145.2 MB memory, the 2nd 72.4 MB, and the last is using 18.3 MB memory. At the time of the memory warning 2 of the 'Edge listing were
    using approximately 300 MB combined. There's nothing else running except for McAfee Scanner service @ 70 MB, which is even in that neighborhood.

    Under the Details tab on Task Manager, Microsoft Edge CP #1 is using 150, 322 k, Microsoft Edge CP #2 is using 73,932 k., Microsoft Edge is using 15,276k.



    Why the 3 running MS Edge entries? And why, when I ended them in Task Manager, did Edge not close but stayed onscreen and relaunched? Once I closed them and they relaunched with less memory usage, the memory warning disappeared. Should any browser use
    so much memory that it causes a warning?

    Hi there. You may want to try this:

    Settings app > Apps > Scroll down and right click Microsoft Edge > Advanced option > Scroll down to use repair or reset.

    Apologies for the late reply. So I did what you said and so far there are no crashes. But then again, i'ts completely random and I had long periods of time without these crashes. Anyway, so far so good. I'll let you know if the crash happens again.

    Thanks for the advice!

    So after 2 weeks being free of this error, it just happened yesterday again. I must say though that it didn't make the 2 weeks period before. Perhaps the cause is a specific website that I visit?

  7. Have you tried clearing your browsing data. That would be my first step.

    What AV product are you using.

    You mentioned a possible web site you visit. Is there one that comes to mind, one you haven't been to in two weeks and were at recently?

    I receive similar errors in the Reliability Graph and Event Viewer but it does not effect the performance of Edge as I can see.

    I share your concern about the Reliability Graph and Event Viewer, but sometimes it is "No Harm, No Foul" imo.

    I alread have cleared my browsing data yes, and the issue didn't occur for 2 weeks. I'm using Windows Defender. Unfortunately I can't think of a particular website, I'm not recognizing any pattern either by looking at my browsing history. Gonna try some Java supported websites.

    Kind of an relief that someone else is having this. Perhaps I'm a bit OCD'ish regarding this but the thing is that it occurred quite frequently (sometimes 4 times a day). I wouldn't be bothered with if it just happened once in a while.

  10. Sorry, if you were following Tony K's suggestion that was more than just clearing browser data. So if you just clear browser data does the issue go away or do you have to reset Edge.
