This type of trojan contains one or more malicious programs, which it will secretly install and execute.
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 Trojan-Dropper is a type of trojan that drops different type of standalone malware (trojans, worms, backdoors) to a system. It is usually an executable file that contains other files compressed inside its body. When a Trojan-Dropper is run, it extracts these compressed files and saves them to a folder (usually a temporary one) on the computer.
In many cases, Trojan-Droppers also drop and execute other files designed to display games, images or messages, which serve as decoys to avert attention from malicious activities. For representative examples of Trojan-Droppers, see the following descriptions:
