Is the cold hardware wallet really THAT secure?

Hiyo guys!

A month ago you convinced me to get a hardware wallet, and now it has finally arrived. Before I set up the device I really want to grasp the idea around one moment. I recall many-many years ago, people said Ledger doesn't work with Window 7 (I have Win10), because it's not secure anymore. But I thought the whole concept of safety of using a cold wallet was around the idea that the 24 words seed phrase is used on the device itself and cannot be compromised?

I guess my question is basically, how safe are my funds if IN THEORY, the Win10 would have a trojan or whatsoever. I wouldn't want to rely completely on the safety of my PC to secure the funds.

Thanks ahead and have a good day!
