Default Default Browser Not Entirely Working

Sometimes my default browser (Chrome) in Win 10 doesn't open a hyperlink... but Microsoft Edge opens the link instead. I've checked all the settings to which I am aware, and they reflect Chrome as my default browser. Why does Edge sometimes open a hyperlink instead of Chrome?

On a side note: I have a friend who appears to have a virus within Edge which freezes his PC... but only when Edge opens. He's run Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware to no avail. Everything is fine when using Chrome... but if he opens Edge by mistake (or his system opens a hyperlink in Edge), the virus reappears and freezes his PC. He's instructed to call an 800 # to resolve the issue. If he reboots there is no issue... UNLESS he opens Edge.
