As Allan already said, your English is clearly better than my French.   
Translation can sometimes be difficult, but this is a very  
international group.

4.5.3 is rather old; 4.6.2 is the current version.  Hopefully someone  
else will provide the instructions for you to get an updated version.

What we need to figure out is exactly what is corrupt.  More recent  
versions of KMM do better checking of the internal organization of the  
data file, which is a very good reason to upgrade.

First, try to run kmymoney from the command line with "kmymoney -n"  
which will start the program without opening a kmy file.  Then select  
Settings/ConfigureKMyMoney from the menu bar.  Click on "Home" (the  
second icon) on the left side, and remove the check from all the items  
on the right.  Accept the changes, then open your data file.  If it  
opens the file, select  Tools / Consistency Check from the menu bar.   
(Hopefully you can find the correct menu items in translation.)  The  
consistency check may find problems that have managed to get into the  
data file - but many of them can be fixed, so post here what the  
results are.
