    Microsoft edge opened randomly.


    So i was typing on another browser i use, and Microsoft edge randomly opened by it's self. It didn't open a page or anything, it just started and it took me to the start page, like when you open microsoft edge, it will say "start page" on the tab.

    But i looked at event viewer, and this log showed.


    The access history in hive \??\C:\Users\My username\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\Settings\settings.dat was cleared updating 5 keys and creating 1 modified pages.


    And



    The access history in hive \??\C:\Users\My Username\AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\GEH\POF.dat was cleared updating 6 keys and creating 1 modified pages.


    I'd also like to mention i previously terminated mircosoft edge from processing on my computer by an accident, and never bothered to fix it because i don't use it. But i find it weird how it just "fixed" it self? did my pc does this or???


    Here's also another odd event log that i'm not sure about.

  4. Microsoft edge opened randomly.

    Microsoft Edge doesn't open in Windows 10

    Microsoft Edge doesn't open in Windows 10.

    Somehow my system got infected with some malware. Due to which Edge was opening random ads in new tabs with any click on any site. After some efforts I cleaned the malware, but the malware seem to have broken edge; some edge files also got cleaned out.

    Now while opening opening blue screen comes fine, just a quick flash of Edge window comes but without showing anything or allowing to do anything closes itself.

    I couldn't uninstall and re-install as Edge doesn't show in programs list.

    I also tried following steps as suggested by the Microsoft Virtual support agent, No issues came up with that and nothing got resolved.

    • Press Windows key + X.
    • Click command prompt (Run as administrator).
    • In the Administrator Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press Enter key after each command:
      • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
      • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
