(Actually, I can not be sure it's clean, but there were no antivirus software installed, so i considered it a fresh install. My mistake, sorry.)
Then the problem has nothing to do with Kaspersky.

Last year I removed Microsoft Security Essentials and then installed Avast, which could work properly, so I think a previous AV should not be the cause of the problem.

A lot depends on exactly which eicar test you download, .txt files and some multiple zipped/rar archives won't be scanned as they don't present an immediate risk as the eicar.com file would/should.

I have just installed 360 Total Security, which can detect the threat when I click on the following link: https://secure.eicar.org/eicar.com

Avast is still on my computer but has been disabled.
My results when I click on your link:


Same here, the first time I tried.

The second time, the connection was disconnected.

Please notify me as soon as you have fixed the problem.
I will keep using 360 Total Security as a stopgap until your notification.

Sorry but your reply makes not sense.
There's nothing wrong with Avast's protection. The fix has nothing to do with giving you more or less protection.

Do you mean the problem has to do only with 'eicar.com' but not with real viruses?

I see the URL is now blacklisted, but is it a correct solution?

The "https://secure.eicar.org/eicar.com" is on a blacklist and immediately blocked by the web shield even the file can not be analyzed right there.
