Windows 11 possibly causing Edge and other browsers to crash

Occasional Contributor
I've been having consistent problems with browser crashing since the update to Windows 11. I've seen it with the Edge browser and the Brave browser, with and without extensions, and on multiple user profiles. Everything is updated, there are no pending updates or restarts.
I initially thought it was 2 extensions working against each other, but the problem persisted after uninstalling all extensions and even when trying on a different profile without any extensions installed in the browser.
EDITS / summary:
- sfc /scannow did not find any issues
- Edition Windows 11 Home, Version 21H2, Installed on ‎10/‎30/‎2021, OS build 22000.348, Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.348.0
- after doing a clean reboot, I believe the problem is either UBlock Origin or one of the system boot processes as I’m still getting the crashes

Does rest of software are working normal? How about Chrome?
Thank you for the suggestion. So far it seems to work (limited testing time) so I guess I'll try to switch the apps/processess on and off to figure out if one of them in particular is causing the problem.
I haven't tried Chrome yet. I figured Brave is based on a pretty similar code.
I tried a clean reboot and it seems to be working so far, but I have some more testing to do.

@weeloshwhale Same here! Incredibly frustrating! I have been deliberately postponing the upgrade but mistakenly scheduled it. Looked and felt lovely until these persistent crashes, usually when multiple browser windows are open and a video playing. Also have this popup error WDAGraphics.... which I can't get rid of. Appreciate help. 

Nothing has worked for me. Frustrating is an understatement! I got rid of all extensions, then installed AdBlock and 1Password and still got the crash with both Brave and Edge. Also happens even if I turn the extensions off.

I’ve lost so much work because of this and I’m actually about to factory reset my computer to revert to Windows 10. There doesn’t seem to be a solution on forums and the Windows 11 support team referred me to here because they didn’t know what to do.

Good bye Windows 11, for now at least.
If I had reliable tech support I would do same: backup all my data offline and do a factory reset. I need the peace - the world is too turbulent right now for one also face uncertainty on a laptop.

PS> Love my Surface and have been using one since it first came out but maybe it is finally time to buy a Mac?
