Help with potential virus

I stupidly downloaded and ran an obvious virus from piratebay (ludicrous amount of seeders/leechers, small file size with a .exe program). Ran it through virustotal which detected 52 engines on it. Did a scan with malwarebytes and had it quarantine the 30 or so files it had detected. I didn’t recognize any of the files it detected if that is any important.

Am I safe now? And if I’m not, do I have to do a hard reset without saving any of my files?
