There is no virus detected by this name by F-Secure anti-virus products. However, the media sometimes talks about the 'Year 2000 virus', refering the problems computers will encounter when the two last digits of the current year change to 00 on the 1st of January, 2000.
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.
For example, many programs calculate the age of a person by substracting current year from the birth year (for example, 97-65 = person is 32 years old). Such a calculation on January 1st, 2000 would tell that this person is -65 years old.

Suprisingly, there are very few computer viruses which activate during new year 2000, and none of them is known to be in the wild.
Do note that exists some trojans that try do to something related to Y2K. These have nothing to do with the Y2K problem itself.
For an example, see Y2KCount trojan at: https://www.F-Secure.com/v-descs/y2kcount.shtml
