After successfully installing Win 10 it ran without any issues for about 1 day then Edge refused to launch, the splash screen opens for about 10 seconds and then disappears. The only change made to Edge was to import bookmarks from IE.
Unsure where to start looking for an answer.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

I have run SFC/scannow and it reported several issues it couldn't fix. I attempted to upload the CBS log file but its too big and the forum file size limits block uploading.

You may be able to zip the CBS log and see if that works?

Does Event Viewer show anything happening in the Application log around the time that Edge closes?

Edit: Future readers, please hold off running the steps below as there may be knock-on consequences!

Thanks Mike, can you try the following steps please:
  1. Press Windows Key + X and select the Command Prompt (admin), clicking "Yes" when the UAC window pops.
  2. Type in Powershell and press enter.
  3. Paste this into the PS window & press enter:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
  4. Let it complete, it'll show PS C:\Users\yourusername> when completed.
  5. Reboot & try Edge again.
If that fails, can you fire up "services" and see if "Windows Firewall" is running?

Aaaaargh! I tried your solution pasting into Powershell and Edge is no longer freezing! However now all my apps will not open!!! (music; maps; photos; money; news etc!!) Instead of the normal name on the icon Photos for example starts with @{Microsoft.Windows.Photos_ followed by a whole lot of numbers!

Hi Keith, I've had a search and can see that some other users have had this problem too, so I've added a caution note to the steps above until we can get this figured out.

For now, I'd run a system restore to roll back your PC to before these commands were run (steps below). I'll search for a solution in the meantime.

This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point. Restore points are generated when you install a new app, driver or Windows update, and when you create a restore point manually. Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers and updates installed after the restore point was made.
  1. Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, then select Control Panel.

  2. Search Control Panel for Recovery.

  3. Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.

  4. Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver or update, then select Next > Finish.

If the system restore doesn't work (or isn't enabled), then it may be possible to uninstall the photos app completely (Admin PS > get-appxpackage *Microsoft.Windows.Photos* | remove-appxpackage), however I think this is only worth trying as a last resort. Once it's uninstalled, it can be clean installed from the app store. If it works with photos, we can then try the code for the other apps.

I'd only use this step as a last resort though.

Thanks Ian. I already have a reset under way. I noted that in my all Apps section there was a whole list under Other - all starting with @{Microsoft. None of which opened. And most actual Apps in normal place were dead - no response to clicking. So I am resetting and will download all apps again! Sigh!

Wish I knew why Edge started freezing!
