Is my computer compromised and what are the steps I should take?

I got a notification from Telegram yesterday that someone had logged into my account in Budapest (Hungarian).

I closed the session thinking not much of it, but then when I went to login to reddit using google just now, the page came up in Hungarian, so I’m fairly sure I’ve been hacked in some way. Obviously changing my password is a good idea, but is there a definitive way for me to find out if there is foul play?

Also any other suggestions for malware removal tools etc?

I’m due a computer rehaul soon anyway, so a full windows reinstall should do the trick, right?
