    I'd talk to BT again & ask them exactly how they reached that conclusion, & why they thought it might possibly help. Note for the non-brits BT is British Telecom, a UK telco & ISP. – Tetsujin Dec 30 '16 at 19:31

    AFAIK, Edge is a component of Windows 10, and is not available for other OS. And, as @Tetsujin suggests, the premise is a non sequitur. What does Yahoo and it's vulnerabilities have have to do with MS Edge? – DrMoishe Pippik Dec 30 '16 at 19:37
  • In an enterprise environment, the administrator will make the necessary modifications to your PC. In a private environment, you give them the finger. It’s your PC. // So, unless further justification arrives, I’m VTC this as unclear. – Daniel B Dec 30 '16 at 20:06

    Uninstalling Edge isn't going to solve your hacking issues you can easily just "reset" Edge which accomplish the samething – Ramhound Dec 30 '16 at 20:08

Microsoft's official answer is that you cannot uninstall Edge. You can, of course, and here's a set of instructions, but it's hecka complicated and somewhat risky. So, I doubt that British Telecom actually intends you to get that far into the guts of Windows 10 just because of something having to do with Yahoo.

P.s. I wonder if BT actually sent the message. Sounds like it might be a phishing attempt.

    Sounds like 'clueless phone support done by [mis]reading from a cheat-sheet' to me :/ – Tetsujin Dec 30 '16 at 20:23
