Some questions on what to do next

So I ran a scan with windows defender (full offline scan) like 4 times and got nothing, ran MB scan and got nothing, though I recently downloaded something and a couple days after downloading it I noticed major performance issues in my games, I scanned the files and found nothing malicious, I deleted the files and ran the windows scan again and got nothing. I then ran a hitman pro scan and it found one small file within a program (like when you look into the files that make up a program) so I deleted the whole program and then deleted it from recycle bin, but MB and windows defender didn’t find anything so I think it was a false positive, I’ve also had this program since day one of owning this laptop and don’t think I ever ran it. So my question is, what should I do/install to make sure I have no malware, should I format my pc (I have a lot of shit would rather not), I am also worried my pc could be used for crypto mining, so what should I do, what should I install, am I safe?
