Brave runs only as SYSTEM (SOLVED)

Please help, I can run Brave only as the SYSTEM user.
When I open Brave, it shows a window for half a second, then it crashes, but when I use PowerRun, it runs perfectly, and it runs with under SYSTEM.
I am a little bit afraid, because sites can use Java and JavaScript to damage my system.

How can I run brave with the normal user (Without SYSTEM priveleges)?

Brave Version:

Version 1.36.111 Chromium: 99.0.4844.51 (Official Build) (64-bit)

P.S.: Brave doesn’t run really perfectly.
P.S. 2: I tried everything I found on the internet, and nothing solved this problem.
P.S. 3: I tried installing Brave Beta and the problem is still there

P.S. 4: This problem has been already solved by @289wk, so if you have the same problem, you can use the solution that @289wk told me.

Go to the location where the brave.exe is, rename it and create a shortcut on the desktop.

First I though that I need to use C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default as the Start in directory for the brave shortcut, I didn’t look at the article too much, but when I read the article, the first fix (renaming brave.exe) helped!

Thank you, this helped!
