Getting malware through a Discord screenshare call?

Hello everyone, thanks for reading this.

Yesterday I was on a business call on discord with someone for the first time, and the guy was screensharing.

His conversation was fishy, he was taking too much time when I was watching his screen (he was stalling) and he started lagging mid call for a couple seconds.

After the call, I was suspicious so I decided to restart my computer, just in case. As soon as it turns back on, windows is “not responding”: couldn’t click anything.

Here, I turned off my pc manually through the button and cut the wifi. I’m afraid; could he have sent me malware? I didn’t click any link/didn’t download anything.

My question is, is it possible for him to send me malware through a discord screen share call?

Thanks
