Description of the issue:
Whether using the icon or launching directly from the exe, nothing happens. There is no process launched. Inert.
Brave was working fine several days ago. Two days ago, I had a power loss, but recovered just fine. Except Brave.
I did an SCF on my system and there were no problems.
I repeatedly uninstalled then reinstalled Brave from a download, but it will not launch.
I went into regedit and removed the lone BraveSoftware entry in the registry, and reinstalled. Still no launch.
It’s as if something is preventing its launch.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 (64 bit, version 1809). Brave: Doesn’t launch, so can’t grab the version number; whatever is the download file version as of June 7, 2019.
CURIOUS FACT: When launching Brave on a separate laptop, it came up for a second with the last several tabs I had open, then crashed. I relaunched it, and it appeared to come up fine except my last tabs were missing, and the history was wiped out. That version of Brave is 0.65.118, and the laptop is running Windows 10 (64-bit, version 1803). This additional info tends to point to something possibly wrong with the desktop version of Brave. My mobile version is working just fine.
