@Tamid, before taking any action, I recommend making a copy of the data vault file (this is a file with the extension *.kde).

Now you have two versions of Kaspersky Total Security installed at the same time (20th and 21st).

You need to uninstall both of these versions. Through "Add or Remove Programs" (if possible) and using the kavremover utility.
Make sure you have an activation code first.

After restarting your computer, you need to install the 21-st version of Total Security.
After installing the program, you can connect the previously created data vault to it. As written here

@Tamid, when you see this message, you do not need to click the "Restart" button, just close this window.
You will find the file “GSI_DESKTOP ...” in the folder C:\users\tami\Documents\
This file should be attached to the next message.

But what about all the files I have stored in the Kaspersky Data protection, will they be deleted?

Hi, I ran the  McAfee Consumer Product Removal tool and restarted my computer. However, it didn’t solve the problem. Attached is a GSI report I did after the removal tool.

@Tamid, write in more detail, after which the problem began.
Have you tried to install the new version of Total Security yourself?

Hi,

My computer was automatically shut down, probably because of a window update. After I couldn’t start Kaspersky for several attempts including restarts and from window specifications, and after writing to Kesparsky support and not getting any reply for a couple of days I tried to install a newer version which didn't improve the situation. I have hundreds of files in the data protection section of Kaspersky, years of work.  I have to retrieve the files.
