    It already spread when you're on the internet.

    Windows 10 Clean Install all done, System running fine now, restored personal documents, and files, ran 1 virus scan, all clean, so hopefully stays that way now, Still Not sure on Firefox, so so used to Internet Explorer/MS Edge browser, But maybe i'll warm up to Firefox eventually, adblocker setup on Ms Edge, Slowly changing account passwords, but got a lot, so gonna take a bit on that part. Thank you everyone for the help, marking this thread as solved I think

    Good job!
    At this point, it would be wise to start making images of your system, so you don't have to go through this again.

    Already did make an image right after I had the drivers in, and a few programs.. Drive limited on space though, so only can make so many, before I'm out of room

    Yeah, I find I'm always running out of room, and prioritize that purchase, as nothing beats a good backup system, since most of my stuff is irreplaceable.

    Therein lies your problem.

    I use Firefox for my main browser, as it is the most customizable and therefore safest browser. I have browser add-ons (like Flash and Java) set to "ask to activate", I have another add-on which shall remain unnamed (per forum rules), I use WOT to evaluate web-searched sites for safety, I use OpenDNS DNS Servers on my NICs to prevent navigating to known bad sites, I use LastPass Password Manager and only log into it when needed, I do not login to the browser to "sync" anything, and I have MBAE for zero-day browser exploit mitigation. All this, plus anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware and CryptoPrevent. Knock wood, I have never had anything my system yet, (save one worm from an infected computer I was cleaning for someone, and forgot to turn my system off at the time - an image restoration solved that problem quickly), and I do a lot of searching in order to answer threads on this forum.
    Do you find it inconvenient to log into LastPass only when needed? I use LastPass as well but I am always visiting sites that requiring logging in...

    No, not at all. It's become quite natural for me. When I open FF, I open the tabs I think I will need, login to LP, login to all the web sites that require it, then go back to each tab as I need it. What bothers me though, is sometimes MS are messing around with their sites, and I have trouble rendering some MS sites in FF. At that point, I have to switch to Opera. Just a small annoyance though.

    Can you actually log into all of your saved websites in LastPass for a particular browsing session?
