I don`t use Edge and have it disabled, I find it to be tedious tbh and have Chrome as my default browser, Googles steps below;
On your computer, click the Start menu.
Select System and then Default apps.
At the bottom, under "Web browser", click your current browser (typically Microsoft Edge).
In the "Choose an app" window, click Google Chrome.
To easily open Chrome later, add a shortcut to your taskbar:
On your computer, open Chrome.
In the Windows taskbar at the bottom, right-click on Chrome.
Click Pin to taskbar.
Please note that you can still use IE from the Ask me anything/search field, I find this handy for adding shortcuts to the desktop that Google sometimes does not like.
Are you aware that Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 have an updated version of Windows Defender that offers the same real time protection as Microsoft Security Essentials, you do not need third party AV protection and by not installing any you are reducing the possibility of potential conflicts and freeing up resources on your computer, information courtesy of admin here
Do you ever hate computers?
No, I quite often see them as a challenge though, so much so I`m off to the pub shortly.
Will check back later to see if you need help with any troubleshooting steps, SFC not reporting any problems is a good sign btw.
