I have run multiple scans and have everything updated. But lately my windows defender has been detecting all kinds of files and asking me to send them to analyzed. Its detecting files like the ones for my games and even other normal files that I know aren't anything bad. I have no issues with the internet or anything but this is troubling me because it feels like there is something wrong with my computer but I cant seem to find out what because all the scanners say I have nothing wrong. Please help I just want to make sure my computer is completely alright.

You can always supplement your anti-virus or get a second opinion by performing an Online Virus Scan.....ESET is one of the more effective online scanners.

Just an Option - Install an Antivirus like Avast Free  or something else Free and turn Defender Off.

 

Then :

Open up Windows Defender , go to Tools on the top menu, and then click on Options. Now click on Administrator on the left-hand pane, uncheck the box for “Use this program”, and click the Save button. You will then be told that the program is turned off.

Since Windows 8/10 Defender includes anti-virus protection, it typically is disabled automatically by the installation of a third-party anti-virus program except for Limited Periodic Scanning in Windows 10 Anniversary Update. This is a design by Microsoft. Windows Defender recognizes the install and automatically disables itself when other anti-virus products are used to avoid conflicts...(see bottom note).
