Tried to download firefox browser. It just says in downloads 'Couldn't download - Virus scan failed'. How do I fix this? I did check that my laptop is updated. Security is updated. Scanned laptop for viruses, got nothing. Restarted laptop. No change.

From where? That tells me it's their site or a Doc site is failing to scan before downloading. This is coming from the site your on.

So the issue is not just a Firefox issue, but more of Windows issue? What security software are you running? So are you a online, but just cannot download? Are you getting any kind of error message(s)?

What security software do you have?

It is possible that (anti-virus) security software is causing the problem. Try to disable security software temporarily to see if that makes a difference.

What keyboard layout are you using in case you selected a layout that remaps some keys ?

Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support to see if that has effect.
