Win95/Kenston (also known as Win95/Haha) is was found in February 1999. It infects Win95/Win98 program files. The virus is encrypted with a simple XOR function.
When an infected file is executed, the virus locates clean PE EXE files and infects them. It does not do anything else.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
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 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 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.

Win95/Kenston has been found in the wild in several parts of Europe.
It has probably been written by a studen in the Kenston High School, in Ohio, USA. The people mentioned in the above text are working for this school and have nothing to do with the virus.
