    Melissa,
    I offer a bet that your computer is infected with PuPs.
    Remove them with AdwCleaner (ONLY from here!)
    I see similar effects every week...
    Good luck.

    During some of the required Restarts you will have only a black screen with NO progress indicator...
  3. PuPs?

    @epzcaw:

    From what I gather here your computer is likely full of PuPs. And since you use it always the same way it gets regularly re-infected (shocked? please keep reading).

    An all too common...

    Doing damage, not installing

    Common misconception; IMHO nobody can know at installation time what a given program actually will do when it runs. These "solutions" attempt to stop the malware to actually do the encryption.

    Dave, you like to live on the edge, right?

    MS told us in clear words NOT to use Win 10 for production systems - and that is what your daily-use (only?) computer is.

    Erik, in my experience it is most likely that the problem is caused by some PuP running undetected in the background. Main suspects among others are Conduit and SearchProtect.

    Uninstalling the OEM bloatware should not be that big a problem. I do it all the time when I set up brand new computers for my customers.

    What you describe definitely is NOT Firefox.
