Overbroad detection of Brave Browser

Hi gents, love the PMPC home updater and am recommending we migrate to PMPC at work. I noticed that the home updater is misfiring and detecting the Brave Browser which I don't have installed, leading to unwanted installs, though I do have a Steam game titled Bravery & Greed. This leads me to believe that PMPC is running a '| Where Name -like "Brave*"' sort of filter in its installed app detection code. Even with Brave flagged as blocked it's still showing in the UI.

I think I was able to flag Brave Browser to stop patching and installing for now with the tool (nice!), but was wondering if you could tighten up the detection code on Brave. Thank you!

Hey Kevlar,
You are right, it's a false positive from Brave! This will be fixed for good in the next update of Patch My PC which will release soon.
Thank you for your feedback and for your support :)
