Hello @LeYoucef

Welcome back!
It would appear as tho KIS may have prevented the download, however, to be certain, do the following: 

  1. Run a KIS Full scan, allow it to complete
  2. Down & install Malwarebytes, skip the registration, update the Malwarebytes database, then run a Malwarebytes Full scan, allow it to complete -> when the issue is resolved Malwarebytes can be uninstalled; it's important not to try to run it in real-time mode as it will conflict with KIS
  3. IF KIS is Premium, not Free, log a case with Kaspersky Support, select either Chat or Email, fill in Malware, I suspect my device is infected template; Support may request logs, traces & other data, they will guide you. 

Please share the outcome with the Community, when it's available? 

Thank you🙏
