I had to removed Brave to avoid my computer to freeze, it does not freeze if I unninstall brave, so I am absolutely sure what is the issue

If you like Brave, install it again and see if the problem comes back.

Thank you for your help, what I did until now was:

  • Clean up cookies and temp files
  • Reinstalled Brave 3 times with reboot
    • First time I download and install it
    • Second time I removed all plugins
    • Thrid time I create a new profile
  • I have updated all windows updates and also hardware such as the bios
  • I have reinstalled the full Windows 11 from scratch
  • I have disable Hardware Acceleration
  • cpu temperature is ok

For now I have it remove it, the pc does not freeze anymore, but I would like to use it again, so any help I will appreciate
