Description of the issue:
New installation of Brave - downloaded on 3/23/2021. After download Brave worked fine. After restarting computer Brave will not open and will not uninstall. Error message from Windows is: “Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.” If I restart the computer Brave will launch and run for a short time then stops working and shuts down. When I try to relaunch I get the error message.
When trying to uninstall Brave via Add/Remove Programs I get the same message.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- The issue is reproduced every time I try to launch Brave and every time I try to uninstall.
