If you have a valid product key for Windows (obtainable from UVK /'system info' in a few seconds), then reinstalling Windows is easy; certainly deleting your partition, with resultant full format and fresh reinstall will clear any hidden junk/malware/bitcoin miners/hidden backdoors/etc....
In my opinion, this beats 'hoping' and being 'pretty sure' you got everything, especially on a PC you might do banking/purchasing on.
(Of course, any less than reputable download sites for software or games potentially 'reopens the door' for attack, as anyone knows)

Just making sure the product key is the activation key you find in the System section of the control panel?
I really don't want to reset my entire PC and lose everything.
