Brave crashes on startup and some brave:// sites

Upon starting brave, through the taskbar, start menu, or desktop icon, brave crashes as soon as it loads the brave://welcome/ page. However, the browser can be used by clicking on web links, thus opening the browser and skipping the welcome page. The reason I believe the welcome page may be the problem is due to the brave://settings/importData page also causing the browser to crash. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Brave.

The machine is running the latest version of Windows 11 (Version 22H2) and Brave is running the latest version as well. (1.58.131)

A temporary solution may be to forge the browser having gone through the welcome page, so that it doesn’t open on launch and works properly.
