Am I being paranoid about viruses?

In the past I lost about $400 worth of cryptocurrency somehow on my computer. It was sent to a random address…clearly I had some virus/RAT. I reformatted my computer and havent really touched crypto or done anything of importance on my computer since.

​

I have browsed streaming sites and torrented 1-2 programs but now I want to purchase some alt coins and I am having trust issues with my computer lol.

​

Obviously the safest method is to reformat the whole thing again but I scanned a with Malaware Bytes and then downloaded avg, scanned nothing came back. Then I downloaded AVAST (Owned by avg) and a trojan popped up on it. I deleted the virus and removed all the apps to install Bit defender and that scan came back negative.

​

Am I safe? Or should I just reformat this bitch. (Also I am not on legit windows…which could be another problem lol)

Thanks
