A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest detection database updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
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 need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
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.
Note You need administrative rights to change the settings.
Toolbars are popular third-party programs that users can install to improve their experience of using a web browser. Many toolbars provide new features or functions that are not available in the standard web browser program, such as saving video files or manipulating images.
As these are third-party programs that must interact with the stock web browser program, there is a possibility that the toolbar's code may cause unexpected behavior, or introduce unexpected security risks.
Some toolbars also silently perform changes to the web browser that may be considered potentially unwanted, such as changing the home page or search engine settings, or displaying unsolicited advertising material.
