Windows defender full scan

My windows defender full scan took almost 5 hours and the bar still showing half of files scanned and there were almost 5 lacs files scanned till then and the most surprising thing is I use my laptop very less and almost 600 to 700 pictures and some videos and almost 50 songs are there saved in it only. Before that I tried the free trial version of Malwarebytes and that also scanned almost 3.5 lac files and I felt then that it's showing wrong information like other scanners and I deleted it and started Windows Defender instead. What should I do now? Should I do a factory resest? Please give me detailed step guideline if possible as I am not a teck guy and learning to operate computer.
