Edge crashes at startup after EMET is installed on Win10 v1607 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are having a weird issue where Edge is crashing at startup after EMET v5.51 is installed on Windows 10 Enterprise x64 v1607.

    We installed EMET v5.51 on a new instance of Windows 10 Enterprise x64 v1607, disabled all EMET configuration using EMET_Conf command line, and rebooted. Edge then crashes immediately when it is started, everytime. Tried with a different user account also and same issue. Even weirder is that even after uninstaling EMET and rebooting, Edge still crashes.

    So it appears that just the action of installing EMET is breaking Edge for all users on the system, not necessarily an actual EMET Mitigation. Also EMET documentation indicates that it doesn't interact with Edge in anyway as well, so even weirder that EMET is breaking edge when it supposidly doesn't have any interaction.

    EMET didn't log anything in the eventlog for Edge crashing, but there is this application Error for Edge:

    Has anyone seen this before or have any ideas on why this might be occurs?

  • I should also note that we are doing this testing on VM's running on vCenter 5.5.
