    I have 2 Windows 10 PCs with SpywareBlaster installed and I use Brave as my default browser on both. SpywareBlaster on 1 of them detects Brave as an installed browser and allows me to enable protection for it, but the installation on my other PC doesn't detect Brave and I can't enable protection for it. I have removed and reinstalled SpywareBlaster but Brave still isn't detected, how can I get it to detect Brave properly. the PC not detecting Brave is Win10 Home, that's the only difference I can see, do I need Pro to enable Brave protection?

    the PC that detects Brave is:
    Edition Windows 10 Pro
    Version 21H1
    Installed on ‎9/‎8/‎2021
    OS build 19043.1387
    Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0

    the PC that isn't detecting Brave is:
    Edition Windows 10 Home
    Version 21H1
    Installed on ‎2/‎24/‎2021
    OS build 19043.1415
    Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0

    Hi WhiteKenny,

    That's a bit odd that it's not detecting Brave on that one system.

    However, there is a workaround to force SpywareBlaster to detect Brave as installed.

    Assuming it's a 64-bit Windows installation, simply create the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\SpywareBlaster\ForceDetect\Brave

    (If 32-bit Windows, omit the "Wow6432Node" portion.)

    Once that's created, open SpywareBlaster and it should show Brave as detected. :thumb:
