Windows 7: Firefox will not load and cannot download anything with

Windows 7 Home Premium
Firefox will not load and cannot download anything with

Just upgraded to 7 from Vista.

Since the upgrade Firefox will not load. No error messages, just nothing when double-clicking the icon.

I thought I would try and download a new version of Firefox, however tuirns out that every time I try and download anything using IE8 it stops working.

The details of the IE8 error are:

Can use IE 8 for anything else (so far!)

Looks like the upgrade went "down south"

Do a repair install so we can eliminate the remnants of Vista
