Brave Browser Being Blocked by MWB

I would like to know why is Brave Browser being blocked by MWB? How can that be fixed since it is not a malicious software. See Video.

Thank you,

The browser is not the problem, it is the website, if you open that site using other browsers you get an alert, it must be the way reimageplus is packing its downloads, with some helper app for download that is the cause of the alert (app downloaders for example)
I dont know why are you trying to get into reimageplus but I surely advise against it, they mess with your system files in order to "FIX" your problems, anything that is messing with system files is a high risk.

I am not typing "ReimagePlus.com". It just appeared out of no where. I don't even have the software on my PC. Please help me.

Then there's some likely to be kind of infection in your system.  Run your virus scanner at maximum sensitivity, then run Malwarebytes at maximum sensitivity, then run Spybot - Search and Destroy and (a) re-immunize the system and (b) run that search at maximum sensitivity.

Regarding your original question, as Arana says -- the issue is occurring at their end for reasons which they consider good, and the chances of getting them to change that policy are close to nil.

If I did that every time I got a blocked notification from Malwarebytes, then I'd be doing little else all day other than constantly scanning my computers - seriously! lol

Malwarebytes Premium, if configured with defaults, will initiate daily scans of the machine and auto quarantine anything found anyway. I've been using that software long enough now and have purposely exposed it to known infected sites to be able to trust it will protect my machine 99% of the time. There are nowhere near enough warnings in the OPs video to cause any concern IMO. The number of detections in the OPs logs is minuscule in my experience and a result of normal web browsing activity when MWB is logging its quarantines.

Cheers, Andrew

Edit:
Disclaimer: I do not sell Malwarebytes and get zero income from any software sales they may make based on my recommendations. I'm just a long time and very satisfied user of the software.
