Thank you
Hi

I suggest that the files you are trying to download are infected by a virus.

the problem is not only with that attachment, somehow this virus substitutes it s "exe" malware to any previous attachment in my mail; the problem is not that I want to open this or that, it s that I don t know how to get rid of virus

Sorry you are correct. It's impossible to disinfect an attachment. Just delete the email.
