I have all the auto updates turned off and it downloaded ms edge and told me to restart the computer, it automatically made edge my default browser along with putting a scype icon on my task bar. I'm not sure why this was installed with all updates turned off.
I haven't looked at edge yet I closed the popups and the edge browser and put all my default programs to FireFox, VLC video player and Ifranview for photos.
I am considering ditching microsoft and using android and ios for my future computing needs unless anyone has anything positive to post about this upgrade. In my case i was happy with everything the way it was working and see no need to change.
