Guess you didn't try my suggestion..

You can also try Control Panel/Uninstall Programs. Completely uninstall Edge.
Next time you open a web page, Windows will ask you what program to use. Select Chrome as you default.

Again recommend CCleaner. Really does clean up the crap and has a tab to disable or remove startup programs.

Good luck!

Your internet connection is powering up via your browser. It's been a decade since I've had to deal with that problem, but that sounds like it's the problem. I don't remember how to disable that, but that's what you need to do.

It's an internet connection issue, not a browser thing. You need to be able to have your internet turned on without any browser at all. And then, if you want to use a browser, you'd click on the browser.

Sorry I can't be of more help, but that's where you need to look.
