    Hello,

     

    Sorry for my reply.

     

    --> Based on Google search results for this "application-name" - there can be next meanings:

     

    - does your browsers with any addons/extensions or system with installed some certain software?

    Do you able to re-check if there listed something suspicious and if it possible to remove?

    Or even under filesystem something about "Coupons";

     

    ---> Does F-Secure mark it as harmful application? If yes -> does there available any detection-names/destinations?

    It can be visible under "Recent events" (F-Secure rightclick tray-menu) or under Quarantine.

    And does F-Secure Full Scan found something?

     

    ---> Maybe you able try to use tools like:

    - https://labs.bitdefender.com/2014/10/adware-remover/

    - https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

     

    ---> If F-Secure do not detect it... maybe good to transfer such file to F-Secure Labs;

    Based on this 'policy' - https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/labs_global/potentially-unwanted-applications --> indeed "harmful" or potential unwanted (or unwanted) application they should to detect.

     

    Thanks!
