I downloaded Lightroom Classic. The first time I edited and exported a photo, it crashed my browser (Edge). The crash is permanent. Every time I open it, it's up for about five second before it takes my computer off the internet. It also takes a nearby computer running Chrome off the internet as long as my computer is on. What's my problem, and how do I fix it? I'm not paying anyone to reinstall Windows 10, as Lightroom caused the crash.

Hey Jim, I don't know what you've got going on, but it sure doesn't sound like anything to do with Lightroom Classic.  Lr Classic is a standalone program that's installed on your computer and doesn't have anything to do with your web browsers.  That's kind of like saying I put gas in my car and now the radio doesn't work.  Unless I'm missing something, the two are unrelated.

I figured it out by accident. I had used Lightroom to work on four TIF photos. OneDrive was trying to send them somewhere, and it ate up all the resources of my router, modem or whatever it is. Not only did it keep my computer off the internet, it kept other computers in the house off, too. So now when I get on my machine, I get out of my OneDrive account. I'm looking for a way to kill it permanently so I don't have to do that every time I log on, but it's not a high priority right now. Thanks for your reply.
