Ninite is the easiest way to install software.
I recommend, however, not downloading and installing random software off random websites. Always vet the software you are trying to download and even the ones you have downloaded. If it's common software you are after, try going to ninite.com and you can select the programs you want and download and install them with a single click (yes, ninite does it get it from an official repo).

Upload the .exe/file to AnyRun (https://app.any.run - may need to create a free account) and run the .exe/file in a timed virtual machine and then after your minute (you can add more time as needed) you can see what processes spawned from that .exe, what network connections it made, and so on.
