My default page in MS Edge is Google. When I load Edge, I can see the google URL in the address bar, then it changes to this
and then Edge disappears. It's clearly crashed but I don't see any warning or message.
Even if after Edge opens I hit ESC loads (to stop it loading/processing) it still crashes.
Despite how quickly I try, when I open Edge and I try to open settings or similar, no windows show - it just crashes as explained above
Application under Event View shows

What do I need to do to fix this?
I did a chckdsk and it found no errors or vunrabilities ( I can't remember the exact message).
I restart the computer and it's working. After a while (< 1 hour) of moderate use (using only GitHub and Visual Studio) the same issue returns. A restart appears to fix it temporaly.
