I have recently updated my Windows to the latest Windows 11 22000.318. Now, when I am trying to download an app from the Microsoft Store, Kaspersky Total Security detects the Windows App Installer as a Trojan. After it disinfects and I restart the PC, Microsoft Store redownloads and installs Windows App Installer but again Kaspersky treats it as a Trojan and deletes it. Here is the Report:-
