Do you have to run malware in order for it to take action?

I accidentally downloaded a .exe trojan, but didn’t run it. I ended up running it through virustotal which popped up with three positives, and shredded it with McAfee.

Yes yes, I know. Should I be okay? I have a full scan running as we speak. Nothing was ran, or installed, or anything. It was downloaded, and then deleted.

Edit: I don’t know how to change it to a question flair, I’m sorry.
