Supershield blocks Microsoft Edge

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded the latest update for Win 10 and Supershield won't allow Edge to load.  Seems like this happens every so often after a MS update yo Win 10.  I uploaded a log file a few minutes ago

Are you a part of the WIP (Windows Insider Preview) program?

 

In Cortana, type:  winver

 

Press Enter

 

What exact version number is showing there?

 

Is it 1809 (OS Build 17763.1)

 

Thanks

Thanks, yep, I was able to recreate this myself on one of my lappys.

 

Our chief Super Shield developer is aware of the issue and is in contact with his M$ contacts.

 

Hopefully this will get resolved quickly.

 

Thanks for the help and the head's up.

I'm sure this affects everybody who has the latest Win 10 update and runs Edge and uses PC Matic.

 

Yep........ on the money!

 

If Super Shield is "paused" using the tray app, then Edge opens and performs properly.  Even if Super Shield becomes active again when Edge is open, there is no problem.

 

The issue is at Edge's launch.

 

Edge is opening, but getting the web page to display is where on initial start up is where there is conflict.

 

Our team is working on it and is in contact with Microsoft about this issue.

 

One thing that Tex found that I hadn't seen previously is that some are reporting a loss of data and files from their Documents folder when updating to version 1809.

Have you guys run into anyone that has experienced this after the update?

Microsoft pulled the update to version 1809 because of all the bugs and multiple people getting their personal Documents and photos deleted after updating.

I rolled mine back to version 1803 and recommend anyone else running 1809 to do the same.

1809 has been released once again.  The same problem exits with Edge-itwon't open with SuperShield active.  Obviously this is not one of the problems MS worked on.

Hey wkunert, 

 

I'm unsure of the status on this currently, but could you open a ticket with our support desk so we can get some more info?

 

Thanks!

Hey donh112118 and :wp:

 

At this point, support can look into logs from your machine and see what's going on in your instance, but it's my recommendation that you'd look into a new browser as Microsoft has announced that they're abandoning Edge and creating their own Chromium based browser. If you'll open a trouble ticket at https://www.pcmatic.com/support/ we can get logs from you.
