Am I Still Infected?

A few months ago, I got infected with a trojan named HTML Adobd something, which was in a Discord cache file. Please note that the virus itself did not do any sort of damage to my OS or other personal files, all it did was show up in Windows Defender. With my limited knowledge of viruses, I panicked and factory reset my PC, hoping it would exterminate anything there. After booting up my PC, I didn’t notice any signs of malware/viruses. However, NahimicService seemed to be acting really weird by occupying 10% of my CPU usage most of the time. I’ve run multiple scans with Windows Defender (Offline as well), Malwarebytes and HitmanPro.Alert, all of which did not seem to find a virus. Can I safely assume that NahimicService is causing issues genuinely, or is there some sort of malware behind it? I did not experience this issue before my PC caught the trojan. Thanks.

EDIT:
Also, is it normal for these programs to be running:

Local Security Authority Process
COM Surrogate
XtuService (Even though I didn’t overclock)
Service Host

occupying 1% CPU usage occasionally?

The cache file is generated by viewing an video, image, or just clicking an link, which then creates an file thats detected just by Windows Defender, its not malicious whatsoever, and cant be either.

I got this same thing! My windows scanned and found this. Any clue as to what is causing this?
