Brave Accessing memory of explorer.exe process and Windows Photo Library


We turned on Ransomware detection in one of our other tools and it noticed that the Brave Browser is accessing other processes on the system. Specifically, it is accessing the process for Explorer.exe and is accessing graphic files in the Windows Photo Library. I have to explain why this is happening to keep using Brave at work. Please let me know why Brave needs to access processes of other processes like Explorer, etc. Of note, no other browser (Edge, Chrome, Firefox) does this.

Thank you!
