First off I’ve completely uninstalled Brave Browser, so I can’t access information about builds any more. The installation was the basic installation Brave provides for Windows Desktop. As I said there is an updater that installs with Brave and this keeps on trying to access the Internet.
Once Brave is completely uninstalled - and I mean completely, totally so that there is no trace left. Brave Updater is still asking for internet access. Meaning that it has never uninstalled. The question is how to completely remove everything that Brave Browser installs so that I am not still having services, updaters and the like using the computer.
I imagine this Brave Updater is probably only one component that does not uninstall so if you have tool that completely removes everything Brave installs in the first place that would be ideal.
The updater tries to access an IP address that begins in 151. several times a day. it does this regardless of complete uninstall and restarting windows etc.
