You should runs your downloaded apps in a sandbox which prevents them from making permanent changes to your computer.
In computer security, a sandbox is a security mechanism for separating running programs. It is often used to execute untested code, or untrusted programs from unverified third-parties, suppliers, untrusted users and untrusted websites
