    Hi grandpa1948!

    How are you trying to launch other browsers? Did you install them? What errors do you get?

    Download Firefox from Mozzila page. You can also install portable browsers.

    Also try installing browser in new user account.
    If there are errors, the cause may be malware or corrupted system files. Check system by typing "sfc /scannow" in admin command prompt.

    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10

    System Restore Windows 10

    Uninstall Firefox from your computer - Mozilla Support Community


    As Andre states, run sfc/scannow.

    Recommend you also completely remove Firefox and reinstall and also run System Restore.

    Do you use CCcleaner ? CCleaner - Free Download or try CCleaner Professional - Piriform
