Microsoft Edge users report boot problems after update

Many Windows users are unable to start Microsoft Edge after updating to version 105. The problem could be solved by deleting some keys in the registry. Microsoft plans to update the browser next week with a fix.

Microsoft released version 105 of its Edge browser on Thursday. That version contains some security updates, including changes to the browser’s enhanced security mode. However, some users were unable to start the browser after updating, after which complaints rained down on the Microsoft forums.

The German Deskmodder also saw these complaints and found a workaround for the problem. According to Deskmodder, Windows users should open the Registry Editor in Windows and then look for MetricsReportingEnabled. The two keys found below can then be removed to allow the Edge browser to restart properly. A Microsoft employee acknowledged the problem and stated on Twitter that an update to the Edge browser is coming next week that should fix the problem.
