edge will not run after annaversery update

Ran update yesterday and after a few reboots windows 10 still runs but Edge no longer runs. Also no more tiles just a desktop now and nothing happens when attempting to open start box it used to switch between tiles and desktop. One last thing - no more access to applications since the tiles do not appear and start box does not produce the option to see all apps. In fact clicking on start box does nothing but show the spinning wheel timer for a few seconds then the wheel goes away and the start box goes from being used to bright white again.

I performed the SFC /scannow utility = no bad system files

I re-registered the edge package via powershell as admin, after clearing the package folder in my user folder of course and then rebooting (several times) no change - edge launches then closes with nothing but the edge blue startup screen for those few seconds it is trying to run.

I performed the DISM commands scanhealth and restorehealth and both reported no issues

After all this not able to use start box, edge will not run (good thing IE still works), and only access to apps is thru file explorer and launching apps from their respective apps folders.

I refuse to give up on 10 ! period :)
