So I tried to download a certain program for free, which didn’t work as expected. I followed a tutorial and downloaded the WinRAR file to my downloads folder. Then I unpacked this WinRAR file and it had some executables in it. I didn’t know if it was safe, so I scanned the files and I got a notification from Windows that a Trojan was found and I had to remove it. So I deleted the files and the problem was solved. But could a Trojan be downloaded without me actually clicking on the executables and only downloading the installer?
