I'm unable to launch Firefox at all, I've scanned for viruses, cleaned regeristry, reinstalled, restarted PC several times. Looked online for hours, nothing helped. Frankly I'm at a loss at this point.

Error message is: ""Windows cannot find 'C:\ Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" - I checked and the file is there, clicking on it directly bring up the same message because...fuck logic I guess? Anyway like I said I'm at a loss, any help would be immensely appreciated.

Start your Computer in safe mode with networking. Then start Firefox. Try Safe web sites. Is the problem still there?

Just a few things to try:

Can you right-click on the file and open its properties?

Can you open the file in a hex or text editor?

Can you launch Firefox from your administrator or a different Windows user account?
