Brave Browser doesn't start after install (window closes immediately)

Description of the issue:
I’ve tried to install Brave on Windows 10 Home and 11, both unsuccessful. The installer window opens and the install is successful, but after the install and on any further attempts Brave doesn’t open a window and closes in a split-second after being opened.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Download Brave Installer
  2. Install
  3. Try to open Brave from the start menu

Expected result:
The Braver Browser opens and works normally.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
I don’t know as I can’t open it, but is the version available on the site 15 minutes ago.

Additional Information:
I’m on Windows 10 Home and tried it on Windows 11 Home as well.
Computer is a Razer Blade 2021 with Ryzen 5900HX and RTX 3070.
The Windows Version is 21H1.

First, Exit/Quit Brave Browser, and then . . .

Some people rename the “brave.exe” application:

While other people, remove the BraveSoftware folder:
