It started while i was browsing anime viewing websites on Firefox.(Both of which I've used for years.) Also note AVG's Resident Shield was online, and i don't remember going anywhere strange or downloading strange files. I had scanned used malwarebytes anti-malware the day before and found nothing.
Randomly, I received a blue screen stating something like "Client side encryption is not supported by the remote server even though it claims to"
After restarting, my computer failed to start normally.(I think it failed to load the operating system?) It went to some kind of auto repairing thing to fix itself in order to startup properly. But it failed.
Safe mode = same as above
Last Known Good Configuration = same as above
Bootlogging? Debugging? Description was it would mention at which startup file it failed to load. It loaded files from the top of my screen to almost the middle, which is about < 10 things. It failed, and without telling me any new information, did the "same as above".
3 attempts of system restore. One was more than a month ago. It would get to the end and "finish" restoring for a brief moment, then immediately show an error pointing to "...Appdata/Roaming/Firefox/(jumble of letters).profile/session(the rest was cut off, but i thought i could see half an "s") It said it couldn't replace the file?
chkdsk didnt find any problems.
So my problem began while using Firefox, and I couldn't system restore because of Firefox? Is Firefox the problem?
Unfortunately I'm impatient, and I've already reformated. What I would like to be told is possible culprits, and to be told I can continue to use Firefox safely(like i am right now).
P.S. I have to rant. This is my second attempt at posting this, automatic restart due to updates claimed my first attempt(spent 30 mins?). Even though this is nothing compared to the many hours this particular mechanism has stolen during my college years.
