Edge now crashes evrytime under Creators Update

My [self built] desktop machine recognised the CU update last Saturday, all seemed to be OK, reasonably seamless, and fairly robust update. No apparent problems for a week.

Now a week later Edge opens, but crashes every time. Reboot no effect. Google search suggest a some other users also having problems with Edge since CU update. The suggested fix, being to creatte and use a new Microsoft Account. Seriously ? Also Cortana has stopped recognising my Profile, and the OneDrive App crashes on startup with a Qt error… Great ! < Not as if I am on any RS3 fast Ring >

Edge and Cortana working OK on my SP4 device with CU updated [So far anyway]

I guess this problem is only me and a few others. So we are stuck with this broken situation, as User Feedback, offers no support. So much for Insiders Preview, or any Microsoft Quality testing. I guess because No One actually uses Edge. So why does Microsoft ‘recommend swapping to Edge’, if it now less stable than before, keeps crashing. Edge is a major embarassment, which I thought they would have sorted in Creators Update. I guess I have to wait for Redstone 3, as Microsoft only seem capable of updating their browser, with an OS updates !

    <p>No one likes this answer (as it isn't an answer), but a week ago I gave up on Edge and moved to Chrome (and I've been an IE user for over decade before that). The random system initiated page-reloads, issues with embedded media wore me down. The fact that many of MSFT's own web pages render more reliably in it was the dagger for me. No regrets. </p>

    <p>I'm also having issues with Edge since CU, it runs for a while then freezes and requires a force quit. I'm about to install Vivaldi and see how it goes.</p><p><br></p><p>I don't have the other issues you're experiencing, though. I wonder if your CU install is bad. Do you have another device to test on or are you able to do a fresh install?</p>

    <p>Have you ran into the new window issue? That's my biggest problem with it, creating a new window is more often burried under the existing window instead of above the current one. And that's not a feature, because sometimes it appears on top but then 90% of the time it's always below the current window.</p>
