Did I mess up?

I just got a spam that said I should restart my computer in order to download a new version of windows, so that is what I did. Did I just download a bunch of malware into my computer? I guess I could run a malware removal tool, but that is such a hassle. Should I run it?

Not enough information here. Did you download an email attachment?

No. I just restarted my computer. Could my computer be hacked like that?

Very unlikely. I’d run a scan to be safe, but in the future, any updates to Windows should come through automatic updates that Windows executes on its own.
