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.
