In 2018, Microsoft re-established its successor on Internet Explorer, Edge, using the same foundation as Google Chrome. Chromium-based Edge was finally released on Windows 10, 7, 8.1 and macOS in January as a manual download. Last month, Microsoft also began pushing new Windows 10 updates, automatically updating older Edge versions without any user intervention.
Based on your current version of Windows, Microsoft says you will receive KB4559309, KB4541301, or KB4541302. The difference between a normal cumulative update and an Edge update is that the latter is automatically updated and it will be forced on your system.
According to user reports, Windows 10 KB4559309 (Edge Update) may slow down some PCs. At the same time, when Windows 10 loads after a patch is applied, some people notice that their computers are moving more slowly than before, especially when fpS drops when loading applications, switching apps, or playing games, with significant delays or lags.
To make matters worse, “Since I installed this update, I’ve had startup issues that only start in safe mode.” Windows Startup Repair says it doesn’t solve the problem. One user pointed out that other users had similar complaints.
It is important to note that not everyone is affected by these issues, and different PCs have different applications and settings, so it’s not clear how common these issues are, but this patch seems particularly bad, slowing down various PCs or causing other problems.
