Two days ago Adblock Plus stopped working in Edge. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it to no avail. It is still working in Google chrome for the same websites.

You have no list in ABP, click "add filter subscription" and add easylist
If you are using ccleaner or other optimizing software it's better to exclude edge from it

I click the drop down menu then I highlight easylist but for some reason it is not saving it. This started happening a couple of days ago after the latest windows update. Before that it was working fine.

These are the 3 windows updates that were installed on 10/12. Don't know if this is the cause of the problem but it started not working around the same time.
