This happens in my last version of Brave as well as my current version.
I click on “About Brave” and I get the following message.
An error occurred while checking for updates: Update check failed to start (error code 3: [0x80070057] – system level).
Version 0.60.48 Chromium: 72.0.3626.121 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
I have tried turning User Account Control off and I still receive the same error.
