This and can you run firefox in safe mode? Type firefox in start button search field, look for firefox (safe mode) in the displayed results, click it.
If it doesn't appear, right click firefox shortcut and select properties. Append [spacebar]-safe-mode in the target box i.e. it should like like
Code:
...firefox.exe -safe-mode

Sounds like Windows is not configured properly or is corrupted.
  • Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.
