Thanks

Can you do the following please

Another option

Close Microsoft Edge Browser

Navigate to the following directory

C:\Users\Your user account\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_xxxxxx\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Recovery\Active

Delete everything on that directory

Open Microsoft Edge

tell me if you still then get this warning please

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
