BB very slow, as if keylogger

Possible security implications.

When I type into BB (anywhere), there is a palpable delay before text appears.
Similarly, when I highlight text, the highlight follows and tracks slowly a bit later.
This does not happen in other apps, e.g. notepad.

This behaviour suggests processes are slowed by a keylogger, but i find no trace of such thing.

This is a new install of BB on a laptop, i7, reasonable HDD.
on top of a new install of win10 pro.

I’ve tried MWB and AdAware.

Is BB keylogging me? If so, how do I switch that off?

Is anyone else getting this with latest version? It hasn’t happened to me before.

Brave is up to date
[Version 1.49.120 Chromium: 111.0.5563.64 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

Any suggestions?

Hello @Will3

Thank you for reaching out and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. Could you kindly use guest mode to see if the issue persist?

Be waiting for your response!

This has happened to me several times, but I never considered it a problem because My Laptop is slow. But when I had high CPU and RAM consumptions, I took to disabling Hardware Acceleration, and upgrading whenever available. I stopped using Brave Browser and switched to Brave Nightly. I currently have no performance problems when I have more than 6 pages open.

Possible solutions

1- Clean your Laptop, and its components, do some maintenance.

2- Disable/close programs that you do not use.

3- It may not be a Keylogger coming from Brave, it may be a Virus that infected Your Laptop, when you downloaded something.

4- Try other Versions of Brave.

5- Defragment the Disk

6- Use the Maximum Performance function on your Laptop.

7- Use these Flags that I use in My Laptop:

I hope it was of some use to you, although I doubt it very much hehe
