Steps to reproduce

When I open Edge, keeps spinning. Can’t open another tab, can’t do anything. I have to go to tasks manager and kill edge. This started happening after one Windows update the beginning of this month. Restored to a prior restore point and problem was fixed. I had another Windows update on 1/9/2018 and again today (1/10/2018) edge is freezing.

I had to download Chrome to get around this problem.
