How to handle bangpro.search virus

I just noticed today that my browser or search engine has been infected with something called bangpro.search. I couldn't remove it with antivirus software, so I did a clean installation of Windows. However, I'm a bit unsure if it has stolen my data, such as my bank account information, and what I should do now. I am also wondering if it could have infected my internet, microsoft account, google account or files I had on that pc, which I have saved over the cloud

Change all your passwords if you're worried they might have been keylogged.

No. That's not how that works.

Change the passwords, and use their "sign out everywhere" function. Then log into them again on your own devices with your new password.

Modern viruses don't usually inject themselves into files, they're more likely to encrypt them. Just scan everything with MalwareBytes and another decent antivirus tool.

I sold my soul for ProSupport.
