Computer security question

I did something stupid the other day, and will take advice on sniffing after possible gremlins.

 

I went to a military site that's Israel-based, Defense-update dot com, and a banner was posted that said my version of Chrome was out of date, update?  And my finger got away from my brain and I clicked on the link. Dammit.

 

Windows defender didn't care.  Malwarebytes, the current and for-pay version didn't care.  I removed Chrome and re-installed it.  I have no problems whatsoever.  The computer's behavior hasn't changed.

But I still wonder if anything was downloaded .... anything I should do to look further?

Where ? In the registry. You have to edit your registry deleting  all entry's made on that date. Then right click your C: drive and choose "Format". That should do it.

But where?

Go to “Bleeping Computer”.com. See if there’s any info on the site. You’ll have to join. True computer geeks. Free. And they know their chit. If your illiterate, computer wise, that may be a problem. You may now be a bot.

Event viewer will give you some clue, but unless you have installed installer logging configured verbose logging before hand than all you are going to get are clues.  Drop back to a previous restore point if you are comcerned. Scap.nist.gov for lock downs

If you format your C drive won't that wipe out everything including things you don't want gone?
