What happens when Kaspersky blocks a link/download?

I googled some stuff and it turns out one of the websites I visited, I think, attempted a driveby download. Kaspersky didn’t even let the page load fully and exited it, putting me into the “Prevented visiting website” page. I clicked on the address again in the history tab to check what the message was and it put me into the same webpage.

I also threw the link through VirusTotal and each link got at least one detection.

Here are the links in question:

 

"https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjZhYjwkpXzAhWWyosKHZ3FAw0QFnoECAMQAQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fweathergroup.com%2Fobsqsyzi%2F89aa50-youtube-ads-are-getting-worse-reddit&usg=AOvVaw3Vs2w9FN2IEDLr7Lj2ysDI"

Am I good, since Kaspersky, I think, blocked these links?

P.S- I’m doing a full scan as I post this, just in case and I’m using Security Cloud Free.

Forgot to mention, Kaspersky also blocked these 4 attempted downloads (two each time I visited the link).

Just finished the scan and it came back clear.

A hour after opening this, I got a “Previously opened malicious link detected” notification and a “not processed” result. What does this mean?!

I got to stop posting but one last thing. The website had an invalid certificate and kaspersky had the “Blocked” result on it. I just ran yet another Full Scan and it found nothing.

@BigHotStud If a Full Scan found nothing your system is clean.

I know but I’m still concerned about “Previously opened malicious link detected” with the “Not Processed” result.

I have no idea what it means. Is it saying that I visited the link in the past or is it saying that I opened a link that it found malicious in the past?

@BigHotStud

Please check your Kaspersky reports and post a screenshot from the detection.

Oh, I had a completely different screen- it just said “Prevented visiting website”. Is this good?

@BigHotStud Kaspersky blocked the malicious link that didn’t open in your browser, there is nothing to repair ….

Wait, just to get this right. Are you saying that Kaspersky blocked the link before it could open in my browser?

@BigHotStud Yes, please see screenshot above : “Blocked by : Web Anti-Virus”.
