I have tried several options to remove a virus called Trojan downloader Wimad from my computer.

I have tried several online virus scanners including: Housecall.trendmicro, f-secure & bitdefender

I have also used several spyware options such as: Windows defender, spyhunter, McAfee, PC tools and Microsoft One care

Many of the virus scanners and spyware options identified issues, but not all have been able to delete detection of Trojan Wimad. Bit defender continues to say that my computer is infected, but PC tools, McAfee and Housecall.trendmicro say no detections were found.

How do I know that the virus is actually gone and non detectable?

Thank you!

Post back with the file path of what Bit Defender says is infected.

Use Super Antispyware to find and remove the malware. Download, install and UPDATE in regular mode then boot into safe mode to run the scan. Directions for using SAS are in the link below.
