I am getting "your windows is damaged" with loud noise adware on Edge on Win 10. When will this be stopped by an update?

As in the title. I can successfully close down Edge to delete the infected site , but why is this malicious software not caught by Trend Micro as a malicious site?
I have had a  look at Google and understand it will not damge my computer but hell it is annoying. It appears on Ebay.au vendors sites.
