Avast Trying to Install Browser Extension

When I opened Brave this morning, I saw a notification that Avast installed an extension on it. The notification asked if I wanted to enable it or remove it. I selected “Remove.”

I had an unwanted copy of Avast on my computer but got rid of it. I was also having issues with Firefox, but found instructions on how to remove the offending registry key. I suspect I have a similar problem with Brave, but cannot find instructions on how to deal with it. Can anyone help?

Hi @notmenoti,

Welcome to community, and thanks for your post!

What version of Brave are you running?

Version 0.66.100 Chromium: 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (64-bit)
