Description of the issue: Brave (Version 22.214.171.124 according to the file folder) on Windows 10 (Version 10.0.19045 Build 19045 according to the System Summary) crashes immediately upon opening. When opening Brave a white program screen appears as if it is opening, then closes and disappears without loading anything. I have tried reinstalling Brave with no change apparent. This issue also persists when opening the program in administrative mode.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Double clicking icon shortcut.
- Clicking toolbar icon shortcut.
- Double clicking .exe icon in file folder.
- Right clicking any of the above and starting in administrative mode.
Expected result: Open browser window with ability to access brave settings and the internet.

Additional Information: I have tried re-installing, updating, and re-downloading. My other browsers work fine for now. I wanted to reiterate that trying in administrative mode has not worked, and I’m unable to try to launch new windows in any other modes as the program doesn’t load beyond an initial white screen before crashing. Now crash reports have been generated either. Also apparently the Desktop Support section does not allow the Crash tag, so I’ve tagged it with Windows. I guess that’s right?
I look forward to any help.
