On 16/7/2023, I accidentally shut-down my PC, causing my computer to update their OS (I have been avoiding the update by putting my computer to Sleep every time). After I turn on my PC again, everything worked just fine, but my PC crashed after 5 minutes. I turned it on again now my Brave browser is hay-wired. There are ads playing for every site that I visited.
redirect and pop up ads common in these type sites
ads before a video
ads appearing LITERALLY WHEN I WAS CHEKING IF I HAD MY SHIELD TURNED ON OR NOT **
Did the issue present with default Shields settings?
The issue still persisted when after following this forum ( see last screenshot )
Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?
If this means can I use it while seeing ads, yes the sites worked just fine
Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration.
No I dont think so. Ive never touched Shields configuration until the issues happened.
Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?
Version 1.52.130 Chromium: 114.0.5735.198 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Windows 11 Home, Version 22H2, OS Build 22621.1848
For added context, I have tried rolling back my windows update but the issue still persisted. I have tried clearing my cache and cookies but nothing happened. I have check with my friend, and it seemed that he has the exact same version of Brave as I do and he does not have this issue.
Please man I’ve promoted your browser to every person that I talked to whenever topic of browsers came up. I swear man Ive converted soo many people into using Brave. I dont want to start using OperaGX man, Brave is too good.
