    That is just not possible, Windows phone cannot be infected by viruses, my guess is that you saw that you had those viruses while browsing, if that's the case, that's just an ad

    You don't have any viruses, whatever told you that is lying. So just don't go to that website that told you that anymore, voila, carry on as normal.

    WP does not have virus. Period.

    Just an hypothetical scenario, if my PC has virus and I copy (drag/drop) an infected file/folder over to my phone. What would happen? My guess is nothing will happen.
    My other question is can the infected files be copied over to the phone in the first place?

    The infected file could be copied over to the phone, yes. But even so it would have absolutely zero effect on the phone. PC viruses cannot infect phones for the exact reason you can run PC software on your phone.

    There are no virus on Windows phones. Your browser may have some tabs that reopen after a browser crash. Close all tabs.

    This^^

    Plus clear all your browser history including cookies and also clear files stored by any websites (check in advanced settings). Also clear temporary files and you should be fine.

    What makes you think you specifically have a virus? If you go to File Explorer on the phone or connect it to a PC using the USB cable, can you find the images that were taken that way?

    Its not a virus. You're visiting a website that is probably causing the crash due to resource hogging or simply bad coding. Its probably opening a bunch of popups or something along those lines, which is what is causing you to see taboola, etc. The website you're visiting is probably infected. If this is happening to you often on the same site, stop going to that site. If its happening on different sites, I suggest looking into how to be more careful browsing the web and various signs to look for in determining the likelihood a link is safe to visit or not.
