ummm, if I know someone else has had my equipment for any length of time,
even a friend (not saying they did it on purpose, perhaps went to the wrong site etc)
I'll scan it, and if still not comfortable (been with a stranger) reformat/reset it to factory.

likewise for the wifes gear. (yes I'll fully check out for instance her work laptop/tablet if her own office IT department has 'installed' something or 'updated the work apps' etc on it for her.)

I'm very pragmatic about this: viruses, trojans, spyware, ransomeware etc. are designed with the gullible and stupid in mind, and that business is booming.
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
