Microsoft Edge Crashing
Does any one else experience Microsodt Edge Crashing within 5 to 10mins playing games in the arcade?
If you didn’t purchase your puter with windows 10 on it, you may as well expect to have these problems no matter what. I have a friend and was there when he called Dell and they said you need to buy a new computer! I’ve purchased the Fix It Stick and Viper hoping that will take care of my issues and if not, thank goodness HSN makes it easy to get a new system. Sometimes…new isn’t always the best until they have gotten all the bugs out. I suscribe to the microsoft feed regarding this issue and the unstable black screen many are experiencing and you are not alone. I’ll let you know when my stick arrives, if it fixes my problems from the upgrade. Lori Ann
HSN recommends using Internet Explorer 10 and higher, Firefox 3.6 and higher, Safari 5, or Chrome in the Arcade. Internet Explorer is included in Windows 10. Start typing Internet Explorer in the search box at the bottom left of your screen and the shortcut will appear. Click on it to open IE. You can also right click on it and choose to pin the shortcut to the taskbar or Start.
Marcy, I don’t have Edge. I’m still using IE11, but it has problems with the HSN website too. I get the message that ‘ a problem with this webpage has caused Internet Explorer to stop working’. It usually then closes and reopens.
However, this Tuesday there were some important Microsoft Updates, including some for Edge. I believe that the downloads for Windows10 are automatic. Check to make sure that these ‘Patches’ were installed:
MS15-094 is the biggest patch of the monthly batch, affecting all supported versions of Windows.
MS15-098 is another major flaw, affecting all supported versions of Windows.
Another one is a fix for critical flaws including a flaw in Microsoft’s new Edge browser. MS114-095 covers a separate memory corruption vulnerability in the new Windows 10-based browser, which could allow an attacker to gain access to an affected machine at the same user privilege level.
Because Win10 was vulnerable prior to these updates which came out Tuesday, you might want to do a complete scan of your computer. I usually scan my computer with 2 different programs including Malwarebytes (free and can be used with any other anti-virus because it only works when you turn it on to scan), before doing any updates. I don’t have my updates automatically installed so that I can do this. However, with Win10 I don’t think that you can control when the updates are installed. So I would run scans as soon as you can after an automatic update or whenever your computer is running differently.
