So, I didn’t close a pop-up fast enough, and my PC downloaded this thing. Of course I deleted it shortly after, I’m just worried if it could somehow still pose a threat. I didn’t run it, and my antivirus hasn’t detected anything since. Was it alright to delete it via the recycle bin, or would the antivirus have done a better job?

I know I’m probably just being paranoid. Something similar happened with a Win32/Autorun.gen virus back when I first got this PC, where I plugged in an infected thumb drive, and Windows Defender couldn’t resolve the issue because I unplugged the thing.

I heard Win32:MdeClass is worse than Win32/Autorun.gen, so I just want to make sure there’s no chance of it still being a threat at this point.
