Re: Update your browser!

Edge should update itself automatically, (it did earlier) but if it doesn't, follow the above instructions.

Google Chrome: Version 88.0.4324.150 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Microsoft Edge: Version 88.0.705.63 (Official build) (64-bit)

Avast Secure Browser: Version 88.0.7978.150 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Re: Update your browser!

I ran SFC /scannow as Administrator from the CMD prompt,  it found corrupt files and repaired them
