I believe it's the Windows 10 default browser, Clive.
Many thanks to all our members, who have made PC Pals such an outstanding success!   :thumb:

and it's superb, you should try it again (or even try it).  :D

At the moment I'm updating my laptop as well (just finished my VAT returns  :( )

C'mon Den - you must be the only person on the planet that uses it.  The only reason I have it on my computer is because it's impossible to delete.   :o:

I use it because it is faster than Chrome, Firefox and IE10. I use it because it is constantly being updated and therefore safer. I use it because when you get used to it I rather like it and that is something I could never say about Chrome or Firefox. Try using it for a while instead of trying to delete it.  :)x

I will say that Chrome is much better on Windows 10 than on Win 7 when it would often hog the entire resources of the computer.  I've just clicked on Edge and it does have a lot of information on its home page.

If you update Windows 10 to the latest version Edge is even better. Just click on "All settings" and then "check for updates and you will find a link to download the latest version of W10. Be warned that it can take a few hours so I did mine over night.

I'm not mad enough to actually invoke a Windows Update Den.  I prefer to be the last person on Earth to get the updates in order for Microsoft to sort out the errors.  Last April's major update took out my Netbook if you remember!    >:(

I'm with you Clive, i avoid all the MS updates like the plague. Even windows 10 on Mrs Bees computer which took a bit of doing.  :P
I've had so much trouble with them in the past that no possible security worry can outweigh the potential problems thay could (and often do) cause.
I prefer to regularly update my AV and malware programs.
