Hi LuZhao4

I am Dave, an Independent Advisor, I will help you with this . . .

Is that Debug file on your Desktop, and do you use the Chrome browser?

That file is known to be caused by Chrome, it is some sort of a bug, and Google support say the best way to stop the Chrome browser creating that file is to totally uninstall and re-install the Chrome browser, make sure to backup your favorites before you do that, just in case . . .

Hi LuZhao4

Yes, Brave is built on the Chromium Engine, try re-installing that browser to see if it stops generating that Debug file . . .

I've just had one of these pop up, in a folder that was open in Windows Explorer. Chrome not installed on affected machine, just Chromium-based Edge (which was also open at the time). No error or warning in Event Viewer or Reliability Monitor. Seems like this needs a fix!
