Undeletable file in ProgramData/bave?


I tried to unistall Brave and then tried to manually delete Brave files. There is one file in c:\ProgramData<User>\brave that cannot be erased (Neither as with admin privileges
nor from admin account.) The file name is:


What is this? how do I get rid of it?

Thanks in advance!

Brave 0.18.14
rev ad92d02
Muon 4.3.6
libchromiumcontent 60.0.3112.78
Node.js 7.9.0
Update Channel dev
OS Platform Microsoft Windows
OS Release 10.0.14393
OS Architecture x64


Can you logout from your user account and login back and delete the folder?


Thank you for the response.

I did logout and login again and am still not able to delete either the file (or the folder). I am also unable to change the folder permissions, even when logged in as admin.

Is this a virus or is it something related to brave?

Thank you again!


Could you try and see if there are any process running for Brave and then kill them if they exist and then try to delete. You don’t need to change file permissions to delete. Also could you try renaming the folder and then try deleting it?
