Steps to reproduce
I have found that Edge will not work if Kaspersky end point protection is installed on a machine, even if you remove it, Edge does not work. I have found the solution. Somehow the following registry entry gets on the machine
Enclosed are the screen snapshots of the what was in the registry. It appears that a “SDDL” entry is put into that registry setting. What I don’t understand is that you can delete the DCOM registry and everything works, at night something happens on the machine and that registry entry is replaced.

Thank you for providing this information about the issue. After thorough testing, we are unable to reproduce this problem in Edge 15002. The registry entry appears to be written by a virus and will need to be cleaned.

It appears that in the most current releases that the problem has gone away. I received an email from #10670876 was fixed and set to fly, both of these problem were inter-related.
