I restarted my laptop and now Edge refuses to open. Is there any way to debug what's causing this? I haven't seen any other similar reports so perhaps it isn't to do with which version I have?

 

I would prefer not to have to do a re-install if possible but I can't think of much else to try.

I just updated to .174 and rebooted my computer. I would check a couple of things: 1) Try opening the task manager and looking for zombie Edge processes, kill those off. 2) Reboot the machine again, see if that works.
