Am I safe with malware bytes and my certain problem with a backdoor? **LONG**

So I need to know, I have been worried for the past 2 days about my stupid decision. A friend sent me a youtube video on discord how to get free adobe photoshop, Hes trusted and has helped alot so I went with the video. I later come to find out that his discord was taken over (though he did get it back), but anyways, I download this file and the video told me to put in the password “lipsar” and run a .exe file. After that, it felt sketchy so I went to windows defender and scanned my files, told me I have a Backdoor “Backdoor:Win32”. I immediately removed it, and all it did was quarantine the file, so then I removed it from quarantine, not restore it, removed it and it said “remediation incomplete” which had me scared shitless. I later got in contact with microsoft support who gave me their malicious malware removal tool, no threats detected. Then I would continue to scan my files with windows defender multiple times the same day. Then, I would check me netstat -anon to see if anyone is connected to my computer that shouldn’t be. Then I installed malware bytes and did a scan, and it didnt come back with any threats. I want to know if Im safe from the dickhead getting into my computer, and if malware bytes can remove the backdoor. **No files have been corrupted, removed, everything is safe, keep in mind its been 2 days.** Also, yes, I know basic knowledge of internet safety and not to download things I shouldnt have, but I was stupid and have learned from my mistakes.
