Blender won't launch at all

System Information
Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060

Blender Version
Broken: (2.79)

Short description of error
Blender will not launch at all. Whenever I click blender.exe, it opens up a console command (which closes too fast for me to see what it says), opens a grey/white screen for about 1-2 seconds, then that closes too. I've tried reinstalling and uninstalling multiple times. I've gotten my friend to give me THEIR download as well, however it still didn't work. Blender has worked on my computer once before (however I don't know what version it was as I only opened it once then uninstalled, this was about a year or two ago) so I know it's not a computer problem.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Just launch the application.
