Have you tried using the ethernet cable? Many find Safe Mode with Networking doesn't work with wifi due to only limited drivers being loaded.

To get into safe mode, in search box type msconfig. I also suggest you install Malwarebytes which is better at handling malware than defender. It will install the pro version that runs in real time free for 14 days, after which MWB will automatically revert to the free version which is manual scan only.

Yes, a reset with remove everything option would work for sure as it is the same as a reinstall. All remnants would be gone.
If you reset and keep your files there will still be a chance you did not clean everything as the infection could be attached to one/some of your files.
Do you not have a backup of your system that you can restore?

you can also hold shift during restart to put you in windows recovery environment from which you can select by number, i would suggest emisoft emergency kit, i also had some trojan that defender didnt detect and he tried to change my gmail and facebook pass.. thank god for 2 factor authentication

I would recommend going to a forum which offers proper malware removal support like Bleeping Computer.
