RE Edge browser: Microsoft pushed that out and are still in the process of doing so,and they found a way to do it as an Update even if you have Auto Updates turned off. The thing runs on Chromium (NOT Google Chrome) with which I have found a lot of malware like problems. To get rid of it: use msconfig and kill the running process called Microsoft Edge. Next go into Control Panel and Uninstall the Microsoft Edge Updater program (else the beast will return) and then reboot. BTW, Internet Explorer is NOT removed, just the tray icon during the Edge installation. You can either find the exe file in the Internet Explorer directory or find Internet Explorer under All Programs and then re-link it to the task bar.
This campaign by Microsoft is to increase their abilities to gather data about your use of the internet, data that guides Directed Advertising campaigns; it is self serving for them and does the consumer no favors.
I recommend not using Internet Explorer anyway...
