In windows if you want to be sure there's only one option which is unbreakable and that is a hardware wallet.

Basically all other wallets you install, web ones or desktop ones cannot safeguard your coins once your PC is infected by a keylogger. The moment you type in the password the passphrase to Bitcoin core for example the hacker that owns the keylogger immediately can get your coins. He can then start bitcoin core remotely and use it as he wish.

Windows security is really f*cked up to a point it's not recommended to keep your bitcoin wallets there. You can of course use a hardware wallet to be 100% sure no one will ever stole your coins.
