Freakin' MS Chrome edge auto-download has been pestering me for a week

Recommended Posts

I installed the MS edge d/l blocker tool kit, but it keeps trying to change my computer. I looked on the MS website, and they had fixes that aren't pertinent to my computer....

 Anyone got an idea how to stop this shit w/o loading it, then trying to remove it?

The last time MS Windows did this to me, was in the early 2000's. Same like with AOL - in a hurry to log off and it hijacks you for a 20 minute download/update.

Why so long ago? I did #2, above. If nothing else, "finder" is astounding.

If everything else, see post #1.

The door was open a crack. I'll make sure it closes more firmly.

Fuckers got me while I was cooking/eating dinner. Took me a half an hour to get it off my desk top. Tomorrow I will work on getting it out of my computer.

This. I haven't used a M$$ POS operating system since XP. Linux for all system level stuff, OS X for my laptops. Thinking about installing Linux on one of the older ones and making it the boat laptop.

Is it paranoia if they are out to get you?

In for a penny, in for a pound. The whole damned OS is spyware so I just let it install Edge but I never use it.
