Trouble opening Zip Files

By 12novnick ·
First time on the forums, I'm having trouble opening up this zip file

https://fxsanalytics.com/core/buddydrive/file/relativevolume/

I'm running on windows 10 and it tries to download and says this on the lower panel of the screen. "RelativeVolume.zip" is not commonly downloaded and may be dangerous"

Gives me the option to discard or keep. I select keep and says "Failed-Virus scan failed"

How do I remedy the issue?
