See: https://www.qbittorrent.org/news.php

"qBittorrent v4.3.4.1 was released.
WINDOWS: Windows Defender is being incredibly annoying lately marking us as unwanted software/malicious/trojan/virus. If you experience problems with the installer not starting or not finishing, check that Defender hasn't silently deleted it or the files it extracts. See this, this, and this.
Read the v4.3.4 changelog too because this is a hotfix release."
