When the shield comes up, do not decline -- make sure you have the right installer -- you can get it from here: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/57.0/win64/

I'm confused. When you originally posted, your browser identified itself as Firefox 7, which is rather ancient. Can you start Firefox now after reinstalling? If so, could you check the Troubleshooting Information page to see what version is listed in the "Application Basics" table? Either:

  • "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Troubleshooting Information
  • (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
  • type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter

Now... it sounds as though there might be other issues on your system. Could you supplement your regular security software with some of the on-demand scanning/cleaning tools listed in the support article: Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware. Those are free (or free trials).
