So it's working fine now?
you do get any more problems then they are probably related to Kaspersky - especially seeing as you can use the internet fine.
Check that Kaspersky has an exception for the IDM program.
If so, and you are still getting problems, then you have 2 choices.
1. Uninstall IDM, and just use the default download manager in your browser.
2. Uninstall Kaspersky. This is the option that I would take, mainly because I have seen lots of problems with Kaspersky on Windows 7 systems.
Remove Kaspersky with this tool - http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208279463
Then replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials (free): http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/
Then hopefully the problems will be no more.
