Brave won’t reload after a simple browsing session shut down.
After a simple browsing session and closing Brave using the cross top right or exit menu, it will not restart even after a few seconds, minutes or hours. Task Manager shows two iterations of Brave still running and its not possible to terminate those in Task Manager. The only way (that I can find - not trawled through several hundred posts - sorry) to get Brave working again is to shut down the PC and re-start.
Brave version 1.2.43
Kaspersky is an extension in Brave
Malewarebytes on the PC but not a brave extension
In Brave cross site blockers on, Connection upgrade to HTTPS on, Scripts not blocked
