    I scanned my computer with Windows 10 with this tool and it found 1589 malware infections.
    Spybot detected 3 infections...
    I doubt that the first program is reliable. Or am I wrong?

    I'd say that the first program is either scare ware, or malware, or a scare tactic to get you to install malware.

    I'd be concerned that you had infected your machine with that "tool".

    Spybot is a more reputable utility. But personally, I'd go for something stronger now.

    Look at the free solutions from Avast and also AVG.

    I agree with the above, but I just stick with Windows Defender. It's already there and works. A regular scan of MalwareBytes certainly doesn't hurt either.

    That is a scam app. Malwarebytes should detect and remove that.
