@alex This looks like something is hijacking your download, likely malware or virus. Your downloaded file should JUST be a .exe file.

If you can, please run a virus scan and report the results. This will help us identify the issue.

No viruses, I figured out it was just an issue with Firefox. When you download from firefox it appends a .vbs extension to the existing .exe. Chrome downloads it as a .exe

You may still want to double check your Firefox configuration to be on the safe side (extensions/plugins/etc): fresh install of Firefox 104.0 downloads Lab installer as EXE file and does not append VBS extension on my setup (Windows 10).
