Windowsdefender found TrojanDownloader in one random folder.

Recommended Posts

I cannot remember exactly, but for almost a year, every time I started Firefox, the first page that opened was a Bing site with a long link. I tried to fix it, but could not change it at the time. I just closed the window and started a new Firefox page, which was a normal DuckDuckGo and continued to use it as normal. When I opened a private firefox tab, this bing site did not appear.
After a while, with a full scan, Microsoft Defender found the TrojanDownloader program in a random folder.
I deleted it, and just yesterday I used Norton to clean it up even more.
The unexpected thing was that my Windows Defender and Norton only found the TrojanDownloader, but no other malicious program.
Now the questions I have is, what data leaking could and should I be afraid of, I used my Windows PC for banking, important account management and of cause some private things.
Is there a possibility that other harmful programs that resolve from this Trojan Downloader are still on my PC undetected?
How would I know, and how could i remove them?

Thank you very much for helping me with this kind of nervous making topic ^^

As your native language is german, I suggest to work on your problem at TB.
