Hi, Thanks for this. Typing internet options into the windows search brought up a screen I haven't found before. I already turned off reputation based  settings and several other options in the security settings.

Try the "internet Options" security settings, enable file downloads in
custom level in security tab.
also see the "reputation based settings" in windows defender,, it has
a lot to do with browsers and downloads.

I give up on edge. After a clean install of windows and all the updates,
Edge prompted me to download the latest version of Edge. Guess what...
It blocked its own installer.

Well It seems downgrading

from an insider build a while back corrupted my system. Now I have the
same Windows security settings you described. And things are back to
what I am used to. But Edge blocked a download from my One drive
account... Hopefully that is not a sign of what is to come.

have got it down to a 30 minute procedure. I much prefer a clean
install when windows starts having unexplained random glitches.

Before you go to the bother of reinstalling Windows, you should

try and fix it.

If that's something you're willing and able to do, it's the very best
way to get a known clean baseline of Windows 10 to start from.

If you have too much time invested in having added programs and have
lots of data, you could consider this before a nuke & pave: */Doing a
Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO


Using the ISO file method gets you as close to a completely clean
install as you can get without taking "the thermonuclear option"
