        Successfully updated Win7SP1 64 with 4565539 (security only), 4565479 (IE), and 4565354 (servicing stack) using on 8/1/2020.

        Opened IE11 today (need it, unfortunately) and a popup asked if I wanted to enable “IEToEdge BHO”. Set it to disable.

        Assume this is some kind of conversion of settings/bookmarks/whatever to Chredge, which is also installed but rarely used. Can anyone provide details? Tried a search on “IEToEdge BHO” on AskWoody but no hits. Search engines give no useful help, either.  Properties below:

        Name: IEToEdge BHO
        Publisher: Microsoft Corporation
        Type: Browser Helper Object

          Thanks for the link to article. Seems odd the updating program wouldn’t recognize Chredge was already installed.

          Oh wait. It’s Microsoft. Nevermind. 😉

        Same on Windows 10 except you cant disable it and it opens edge when you visit most sites (e.g., so its impossible to open youtube on ie11 because it gets immediately closed and edge opens with warning that the site is incopatibe with ie and that i must use edge) And also it puts a giant popup on new tab page that says to use edge and also it puts on the menu a Open in Edge option. Basically it destroys Internet Explorer.
