Operating system and version (Window 8.1)
Brave version (0.19.134)

Hello! :wave:

I downloaded brave, and as I was looking through the settings and plugins, I accidentally clicked on the download button for Google Widevine. I clicked it again right after, but it seems that it is not working to disable the plugin. I have tried uninstalling brave itself, and searching online, but found nothing. Is there a way I can remove it or disable it? I am new to the site so I only allowed to post one picture. This keeps popping up, and I press cancel but it doesn’t stop even when I go and disable the plugin.

Thank you!
Have a great day! :smile:
