    Have you tried to open the App and file control (from main user interface, under Tools tab), select the file and click Remove?

    Dear @wolf_man1958

    In addition to what Cale has already advised, try the following:

    Open the scanning report to find the location of the detected file(s)

    1. Open F-Secure SAFE
    2. Select Tools
    3. Choose Recent Events
    4. Click Scanning Report

    Locate the file in the scanning report and follow the file path, for example:  C:\Users\xx\xxx\xxxxxx\xxxxxx\

    Try the following instructions to manually remove the detected item(s):

    1. Open File Explorer
    2. Copy the file path (without the item filenames) where the detected item is located
    3. Paste the copied path into the Address Bar in File Explorer
    4. Delete the detected file / the whole archive manually
