Adware:W32/BTB.A is detection for an adware toolbar.
The software used to develop this toolbar can be utilized for non-malicious and malicious purposes, such as redirecting searches to unsafe sites.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it may block the file from running, move it to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or ask you to select an action.
The toolbar redirects searches to links found in an XML file.
A malicious "developer" can modify this XML file and insert links pointing to unsafe sites. This toolbar can then be used to compromise the user's privacy, such as browsing habits that other third-party operations, such as advertising companies.
See Adware:W32/Mostofate for additional information.
