I’m almost positive my laptop has a virus but windows defender says its fine

I have a pretty old laptop that I haven’t used in several years that I now need to use for school work, but since I haven’t used it since like middle school it has tons of random garbage and undoubtedly has a virus or two. When idle, task manager says 100% of disk is being used, tons of programs I don’t know if are important or not are using 0.1% of cpu and memory and it runs like garbage. I know its an older device but I’m using what I have rn so I’d appreciate any help. I’m thinking about factory resetting it but there are a few files I want to keep and it’d be a huge pain to transfer them to anything because it’s running so slow.
