@MichaW2000 You're right. It is due to TrendMicro's behavior scan (Office scan). I temporarily turn of Edge update. How's the next

same issue here. if u stop officescan agent and turn it on again, it works well, but officescan agent says it has to do an update. if u do the update, u can not start edge again.
We added 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe' to the trusted programms in officescan. Now it works with updated officescan agent.

Same problem here.
And of course setting an internet browser as a trusted program and thus disabling behavioral monitoring on it is a security problem.
I hope, TrendMicro is releasing a new pattern soon, which fixes this false positive.

@MGubitzer Is it TrendMicro's or Edge's problem? It only affects version 87.0.664.52, the previous version works.
Is any other AV solutions detected Edge updater as problematic? if the answer is yes then probably Edge's problem, if the answer is no then it's Trendmicro only.
try other AV solutions, Windows Defender or Kaspersky free version (or trial of internet security), it's much better than Trendmicro. it was the first AV to detect Stuxnet.

Ok, this was a quick one:
"Thank you for contacting Trend Micro... This is a known issue and our development team are working on a fix as BM is indeed blocking it - you can try and add the following exclusion "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe".
A fix for this issue will be released."

There is also a KB Article on the JP site from Trend Micro:
This article says the same like the answer from @MGubitzer support ticket.
