It has nothing to do with your anti-virus. The "The Sims 4.rar" file is, as error states, corrupted. In your torrent client right click on "The Sims 4.rar" torrent and select "check files"/"force recheck" or some similar option.

And do the same for every expansion that fails to extract too.

If you seem to be getting that kind of error more frequently, consider switching your torrent client to something else than what you are using right now. I use qBittorrent and can't complain about it. I hear Tixati is also very good, so maybe that can give you a first start.
