So I am trying to download Salad. I first tried downloading the file normally. It said that the file contained a virus and wouldn't let me download it. Then I tried downloading the file with internet download manager and I clicked the file and it said " Failed to access the selected file of folder, You may have insufficient permissions. Then the file just deletes itself. I am 100% this software is not a virus

If you want to avoid installing other browser then run this in PowerShell:

PowerShell:
cd \
wget https://github.com/SaladTechnologies/salad-applications/releases/download/0.4.2/Salad.Installer.0.4.2.exe
You'll find it in C drive

On a side note the AV I use is called Kaspersky and I tried uninstalling it and it said it uninstalled but it just removed the shortcut from the desktop and the option to delete it in control panel. The software still works tho

Removing Kaspersky requires reboot.
If there are browser addons from kaspersky you'll have to get rid of them too.

after reboot verify Windows defender is active.
