What is the best way to scan for viruses win 10?

Hi, So im wondering if there is a better way to scan for threats then using windows defender.

Like a super invasive scan that wont miss anything, Well like 99.99 i know hackers are good at disguising viruses so may miss some stuff.

Im only asking cuz a few days ago one of my online accounts got hacked and every time my computer does something odd now i start thinking i have a virus (Super paranoid)

I just want my pc to be secure.

    While no AV detects 100%, Windows Defender is actually one of the best. If it says you are clean, then you probably are. If you want a second opinion, install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and run a scan. Comment this answer if that finds stuff. I can advise further.

    If it come out with nothing found then your computer is fine.
