Brave update is constantly generating a critical error in Event Viewer relating to Google Update Helper. This is the error:
“Product: Google Update Helper – Error 1316. The specified account already exists”
The source of the error is “MsiInstaller” with an Event ID of “11316”. This error occurs on a regular basis, sometimes hourly other times every 10 minutes.
Although this relationship to Google Update Helper is confusing, I have confirmed that Brave is the cause. I first started receiving these errors the day I installed Brave. I have no Google Update processes running. Once I disabled all Brave services and Scheduled Tasks, the error disappeared.
Is there a fix for this?
