No mention of checking and disabling Plugins in that article. Even if you use a portable version of Firefox, it auto-loads any plugins installed on the system.

Plugins can be enabled and disabled 'on the fly' in most* browsers, I only have Flash enabled as it's the most commonly used and my current gfx card doesn't do HTML5 very well.



*NOTE: even with the Java plugin disabled in IE, Java can still be triggered by a web page opened in IE; if that trigger is from an exploit pack - your OS is likely to become infected! Keep Java updated or, if you don't use it frequently, uninstall it.
