The Brave Browser fails to launch, data won't delete



One day it simply stopped working. I don’t remember if it was after an update or not.

One of the help entries suggested deleting the Brave data. I found this to be impossible. In App Data in the Roaming section the Brave folder will not delete. Neither under admin access or personal access.

At this point I have to think of it as malware.

So I can’t run the program even on rolled back installations and I can’t delete its data. Something is really wrong.


I have the same exact problem. Windows 10. The Brave folder ( %appdata%\Local\brave ) will not delete, and cannot be accessed. Brave cannot closes on launch with this problem. Uninstall and reinstall of new Brave, installation fails since this folder cannot be accessed.
