You're mixing up the concept of operating systems and applications.

Windows and GNU/Linux are operating systems.

Kaspersky Internet protection is an application running on Windows.

Windows viruses only affect the Windows operating systems or Windows applications , not Linux.

So as long as you are not running Windows applications in Linux using wine, it should be impossible for Windows virii to affect the GNU/Linux operating system or Linux applications.

At first, I thought you had not answered, and then saw your answer at the end of my answer.... Very confusing.

Can you help with this problem?
