Suspicious processes/components were found in the virtual memory after the suspect file was executed and examined in a virtual test system.
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.

A detection in the format 'Memscan:[variable]', where [variable] can be 'trojan', 'worm', 'virus' or similar, is a Heuristic Detection of a file or program that behaves in a suspicious or potentially harmful manner.
To examine a suspect program's behavior, security software will run it in an isolated "virtual system" and observe its actions within the contained environment, without compromising or endangering the user's actual system. Suspect files that perform suspicious or harmful actions in the virtual system will trigger a Heuristic Detection.
