Application.Agent.CZQ identifies a program that asks the user to purchase the "full version" of a discontinued video editing program.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either automatically delete, quarantine or rename the detected program or file, or ask you for a desired action.
Security programs will sometimes unintentionally identify a clean program or file as malicious if its code or behavior is similar to a known harmful program or file. This is known as a False Positive. In most cases, a False Positive is fixed in a subsequent database release.
Usually, updating your F-Secure security product to use the latest database is enough to resolve the issue. You can check by first updating your F-Secure security product to use the latest detection database updates, then rescanning the file.
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it to F-Secure Labs for re-analysis.
NOTE If the file was moved to quarantine, you will need to first collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.

Windows Movie Maker (also known as Live Movie Maker) is a free video editing program produced by Microsoft. The program was discontinued in January 2017 and removed from download.
Following its discontinuation, fake or modified copies of the free program were found being used to collect money from unsuspecting users. This is a variation of the same marketing scheme used to promote rogues.
Application.Agent.CZQ identifies a modified version of the Movie Maker program, which has been altered to appear to be a "trial version". Users who install this program are told that they need to pay for an upgrade to a 'full version' that would provide them with more features. The user is repeatedly prompted to make the purchase.
