Microsoft recently pushed a security update to users running Windows 10 May 2019 Update, the update introduced fixes and security improvements and with them, came a nasty Start Menu bug, as a result of which on using the Start Menu, affected users are getting a critical error message. On the bright side, however, a Microsoft engineer recently acknowledged the issue and promised to bring a fix.
Now, it appears that the Start Menu bug is not the only issue that needs Microsoft’s attention. Some users on Microsoft’s Community forum complained that the KB4517389 update broke the Microsoft Edge browser.
“I have had the same issues. My IT department tried reinstalling as well and it still won’t open. This just started 10/9/19 and I assume it has something to do with last windows update. I opened a ticket with Microsoft and they tried to troubleshoot and all those failed,” a user wrote on Microsoft community forum.
Another user corroborated a similar story by saying that, “…Besides, Edge does not work anymore. It does not start anymore. Internet Explorer starts and runs. I’ve [uninstalled] update KB4517389 everything works as before. Apart from VMware 14, which does not work anymore, too.”
Some reports of the failing of KB4517389 have also surfaced. Affected users are getting an error message while trying to install the cumulative update.
Microsoft is yet to make its observation on these issues and hence it hasn’t acknowledged these issues. Consequently, there is no fix available at this moment, but if you’re affected and still need to use Microsoft Edge as your default browser, uninstalling the KB4517389 update will surely bring everything back to normal.
