Looking at the PM forum, there are LOTS of new topics about video playing, perhaps that is a better place to continue a discussion.

I'm going to close this thread before it becomes as negative and disrepectful of us here at LzD as it is over there.

As a refresher, our forum rules can be found here:  https://www.landzdown.com/welcome-to-the-landzdown-forum/welcome-to-landzown-get-computer-help-here!/

Stay home. Stay safe. Save lives.

IMHO: You're having a login problem, not an Edge problem.

Agreed.

Are there multiple profiles on this computer?

Settings > Accounts > Family & other people

Do you have a link to that info you posted about Edge?  Reading what you quoted makes me think the author is talking about the old version of Edge, not the new Chromium based one (which is the one you installed).

"comes without extensions support" is obviously incorrect as I have extensions added to my Edge.

Those with Facebook will have noticed the prompt to install the Facebook Container add-on:  https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/03/12/firefox_74_aims_to_contain_facebook_tighten_security/

Does the load for IE work for EDGE?

Which Edge?  Legacy or Chromium.

Ooops

"Avast's AntiTrack promised to protect your privacy. Instead, it opened you to miscreant-in-the-middle snooping"

then moved to WordStar

OT - That's a trip down memory lane.  I used WordStar, CalcStar, DataStar/InfoStar etc back in the early 80's.  Never understood how they so completely rolled over when WordPerfect came out.

Have you thought to change the default 'save' location?

You can specify the documents location via File | Options | Save and also in the File Locations dialog box File | Options | Advanced | File Locations

Regarding the Installed Programs button ... clicking the Clean Up button opens the Add/Remove Programs window (the same one you see from the Control Panel).  It's just a convenient way to put everything in one place.

Likewise, the Windows Components button opens the Windows Components Wizard, which can also be found by opening Add/Remove Programs and then clicking the button Add/Remove Windows Components (on the left side of that window).  The wizard shows you batches of Windows components, not individual applications.

I suspect your free disk space will only increase if you remove some of the little used programs that are installed.

The Disk Cleanup tool is part of Windows ... it will perform a search on the hard disk for files that can be deleted from your computer without affecting/damaging its functionality or your personal files.



The dialog box will show you assorted items for you to check or un-check.  Clicking on an item will open up a description at the bottom of the window, so you can read up on that item if you like. There’s nothing in the Disk Cleanup tab to be concerned about, it doesn’t present you with options that would damage your computer or its performance.  Downloaded Program Files and Temporary Internet Files are a good place to start.

The More Options tab is a little trickier, I'd ignore the Windows Components section for now ... hopefully you'll free up enough space with the Disk Cleanup tab.

The .NET Framework is required to run many Windows applications.  Uninstalling it may cause some applications to cease to function.  It is 'safe' to uninstall with that caveat (you can always reinstall).

There are three ways .NET Framework typically gets installed on a computer ... by default with Windows installation, an application that required it installed it automatically, or an application directed to a separate download site to install a particular version.

To remove all existing versions of .NET Framework from Windows XP, use 'Add or Remove Programs' in the Control Panel. Be sure to remove the latest version first. In your case, your computer has .NET versions 2.0 and 1.1 installed, so first remove 2.0 and then 1.1.

Note: Keep track of which versions of .NET were removed in case you need to download and reinstall these same versions from Microsoft.


BEFORE you do that, I trust you have already run the Microsoft Windows Disk Cleanup Utility, and deleted temporary files and no longer wanted video files.

You can safely use the link DR M provided (thanks for that) ... it points to the current direct link https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/dl/382/
