If malware is in the actual download, you'll get the malware as part of what is downloaded.  If you have an installer that doesn't include malware but downloads it during the time you run it, whether you can be infected or not, it may still be placed on your machine.  It doesn't matter what you use to download the installer.  It may still include or direct anyone who runs it, to a malware download.

Hi,
But note takers can't get viruses. So in theory, I should just have one single file, that I chose to download.
