Help! A fake virus (Zeus) has taken over my Edge Browser and I cannot close the tab. Even after using Task Manager to close the browser, the tab returns when the browser is re-opened.

Follow these steps:

  1. Close Microsoft Edge Browser
  2. Navigate to the following directory
  3. C:\Users<user>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_xxxxxx\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Recovery\Active
  4. Delete everything in the Recovery directory
  5. Open Microsoft Edge
