Windows Defender and Malwarebytes found no threats but my discord account was still hacked

I made a post here a few days ago about executing a bad file sent from a friend’s discord account which was recently hacked.

Windows defender immediately removed the file and I did full system scans and a rootkit scan using both defender and Malwarebytes which yielded no threats. I assumed it was nothing and people on the sub assured me that I was probably safe.

Today my I found that my discord account was sending out the same file that was sent to me without my knowing or consent. I did another rootkit scan and it still yielded no results. Any idea if my device could be infected by an undetectable virus? Do I need to reinstall Windows and change all my passwords?
