Uninstalled Brave but it kept reaching for internet after uninstall

Description of the issue:

I uninstalled using Windows normal uninstall process, then it was gone from my list of programs, shortcuts were gone and then… shortly thereafter what do I see?
Brave Update trying to access the internet. So I go in the program files and see Brave Update still there, so I delete that and then I see Brave (brave.exe) trying to access the internet, so I got rid of that and have been good since.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Uninstall from Windows using normal Windows uninstall.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

It didn’t uninstall the whole program.

Expected result:

A full uninstall.

Reproduces how often:

Only tried it that once.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Windows 10, most current as of June 22, 2019
Not sure of Brave version but it was current as of June 22 or 21, 2019

Additional Information:

Thant’s all I know and since it’s been uninstalled and I won’t be reinstalling I can’t offer any other helpful info, not that I offered much to start with.
