Try to download firefox, goto and download and install that browser, we need to check to see if the problem is with the computer or the browser.

Lets check your system for malware.

1.) Click the link below to download Malwarebytes.

2.) Install Malwarebytes scanner, update program if it asks you too.
3.) Turn off the computer
4.) Turn on the computer and press F8 multiple times.
5.) A menu will appear - select "Safe mode with Networking"
6.) Windows Safe mode will open, then open MalwareBytes and scan your computer for bad programs and once it is done scanning, remove any threats.
7.) Once done, restart your computer and boot into regular windows.
8.) Try to either use the address bar or install firefox.

Ok. Go to manually and try to download the free version. If that does not work, download it on another computer and transfer it over on USB flash drive.
