Trojan was executed but removed immediately, am I fucked?

I’ll try to be as exact as possible with the actions I took. For some context one of my friends’ PC was recently compromised by a trojan and as a result his discord account was also compromised. From his account he sent me a file that looked to be a executable game for his school project (he’s doing a comp sci degree) and asked me to test it out.

I accidentally executed the program which I thought that my friend had made and Windows Defender immediately picked up and quarantined the executable and the dll it put in my appdata folder. I ran a full system scan as well as an offline scan after this and it told me that no threats were found. I also ran a full malwarebytes scan which told me the same. Should I do a full system reset and change all my passwords or am I just being paranoid?



Give Windows Defender a Pat on the back and continue your computering, seems like you’re safe.


Here is the exact infected file and the signature:
c:usersUSERappdatalocaltemprar$exb3604.19594block dash 3.4.exe

I did not extract the dll files in the rar itself and only the executable itself when I executed it.
