Is Edge an incomplete browser, or just simplified?

Windows RT

I have been using browsers going back to Mozilla, pre-unregistered IP days, but I find Edge to be most lacking of major browsers and yet MS seems to ignore these faults. Am I missing something? I've used IE without issue, Chrome has some nice features. Firefox is good in many situations but I have to through Edge into the same category as poor Opera, as a stripped down browser that doesn't seem to work well with most webpages, even though it may be accessing the MS search tool Bing! I use Bing most everyday along with Google and several other search resources. Bing offers MS rewards so I bought in for a $5 card every month or so. But when I access Bing via Edge, I find the graphics missing. I admit, I may have something misconfigured but I cannot find the correct button to push to display properly much of the data. Recently, there was a quiz asking to sort the order of four items and move them to the slot on the right. Sorry, I don't see a slot or other device on the right. I've reduced the screen so I can see the pig picture, no luck. Any ideas?

Can't use any online Microsoft apps on Windows 10 (Store, Edge, Xbox, etc). Getting errors 0x8000FFFF and 0x80072EE7.

Windows RT

This is an extremely bizarre issue that started over the weekend. To start, on Sunday I got malware on my system for the first time ever on my current installation of Windows which dates back to Jan 2015. Ok, so when I first notice I installed the malware I went to network settings and disabled my network adapter (easier than unplugging the cable I guess). I install malwarebytes, it does it's thing, I do another full scan with Windows defender, all malware gone. I re-enable my nic and the system is 100% normal, I thought. Not until the next day I open the Xbox app to share an Xbox game clip with a friend and the app just opens and hangs without loading, I think it needs an update so I open the store, and the store says "Check your internet connection and try again, We couldn't connect to the server." and switches off between errors 0x8000FFFF and 0x80072EE7. All sources only say it's a DNS or Proxy error, try every recommended step possible. Try alternate DNS's, clear network settings, refresh DNS cache, restarting my router and modem and such, change Proxy settings, and nothing. I resort to contacting Microsoft Support and their site didn't load right on chrome so I open edge to try it there, and edge just force closes the second I open it every time. Even the built in Contact Support app on Windows 10 doesn't work and gives an error. Where can I go from here? I'm due for a clean install of Windows, but don't have the time to reinstall the many larger programs and transfer the many files and such I have on this system. I don't have any spare drives to do an image recovery, either.

corrupted .NET problem

Windows RT

I have been trying to run my Curse Client in windows 10 to update some add-ons in world of Warcraft and within the last week I have been getting a .NET error that I may have a corrupted file. I tried to download and re-install the latest version of the .NET update v 4.6.1 and my computer is telling me that it is already installed. What can I do to fix this problem? This is part of a series of problems that occurred within the last week. I had to spend almost 2 hours online with HP support to get my printer working again and I also had problems running other game programs but they started working again.

Windows DVD Player For Windows 10

Windows RT

I originally had Windows 7. Upgraded to Windows 10 and received the Windows DVD Player. I had to reset computer to factory settings due to a power outage during a Windows Update. I upgraded again to Windows 10, but this time I didn't get the Windows DVD Player. My computer says it is up to date. Can I still get the DVD Player or am I out of luck?

Skype crashes the computer since the Windows 10 update to version 1607.

Windows RT

My PC [HP ProBook 450G - 3 months old] running Windows 10 did an automatic update to version 1607,about 10 days ago and then it would automatically crash and restart after about 6 minutes of operation. I have spent several hours with a level 3 Microsoft technician, he has reinstalled Windows and the problem was fixed until he installed free Skype. I have office 365 on the computer with Skype for business which i do not wish to use. The level technician does not have an answer for this problem caused by Skype. He suggested I use the business version, but that is not a satisfactory solution. All drivers are current. I welcome any advice, Thanking you in advance. Bronwyn

How do I disable the KB3213986 Update

Windows RT

How do I disable this update? KB3213986 I have unchecked "Defer updates" but this defers features, not required security updates. I'm not really sure what Microsoft wants me to do, because it is forcing me to update, but for whatever reason it's not happening, no matter what I do. Things I've Tried: - Unplugging all USBs before updating - Manually downloading the 961 MB file from Microsoft's site (64-bit cumulative update KB3213986 - Used the Windows 10 recovery from USB to restore windows (it found and fixed issues, but this didn't fix the update). When installing this update, my PC reboots about 6 times. Windows then decided to go ahead and try again right after telling me it couldn't install. This has been an ongoing thing for the last 8 days and I'm getting close to turning off updates for a few months until this is resolved, and manually update important items from the site. This is a brand new computer. I'v only been using it for 2 months. Haven't had a single issue until this update. Here's some specs on my PC: - Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 14393) - Motherboard: GA-990FXA-UD3 Ultra-CF - CPU: AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core Processor - Ram (32GB) @ avg 2210 MHz - Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 960 (2GB) - 128 GB SSD (65GB free) Programs running: - Windows Defender - Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Google Chrome Browser - NVidia Control Panel If anyone has some advice, other than buying a new computer, please let me know. Thanks for your time!

Windows RT

I have hp pavilion p045tx with windows 10 pro. I recently install Ubuntu with windows 10 so for that I convert my bios setting from UEFI to Legacy mode for install third party software like wireless Driver and all in Ubuntu. But after every restart the bios setting change to default and that is to UEFI mode and that will cause an problem of no OS detect. Every time I have to go to bios setting and enable the legacy mode to start my OS. Can anyone suggest me what to do in this case.
