I'm not entirely sure where I should post this, it's a little confusing because I don't nee help removing them, as malwarebytes has quarantined them and I will remove them if they are deemed harmful. The only thing that has me slightly concerned is that all the iTunes files are "RiskWare.IFEOHijack" Everything else are PUPs.

I want to know how bad these files are or were?

I apologize if this was the wrong area to post.

These are all false positive. Maybe @Umbra can help.
The engine is on steroids and will clean even W10 system files because it classifies it as Riskwares in future. I'd advise you to downgrade to 2.x and as a test restore all the quarantined legit files and scan them using v2.x.

@Umbra how effective is EmsiSofts Anti-malware?
It iz da best :p

More seriously, EAM is quite good actually, we have 3 simple but efficient protection modules working well together. EAM is often well-rated in test labs (for what they are).
It doesn't have 50+ complicated options that makes your brain explodes and it doesn't bury you under hundreds of popups a day. :)

I will add, even before working for Emsisoft, EAM was first in my top 3 AVs.

@Umbra
Okay. So would I be able to use EmsiSoft Emergency Kit + EmsiSoft Anti-Malware + malwarebytes. If not then would I be able to use EEK+EAM without and issues?

@Umbra I've scanned my PC again but with EEK, it also detected the iTunes files as "SecHijack (A)". Not entirely sure what's going on with iTunes now. Perhaps I should update the software itself and see if they keep coming back as threats.

Try to update iTunes to make sure, you have the latest version.

iTunes - Download iTunes Now

As for the detections, I find it odd, that you have got so many IFE hijacks. I do not recall CCleaner, Steam or TeamViewer creating those.
I remove the whole IFE key every day to prevent hijacks. You should try additional anti-malware scanners, try some anti-rootkit as well.

And check your Itunes on Virus Total.

I have iTunes and can confirm that I don't have any such detections when I scan my computer with EEK or Malwarebytes. Your copy of iTunes is definitely malicious and you should remove it with EEK or malwarebytes, uninstall any remnants with Revo uninstaller or any other installer and go to the official Apple website to get yourself a fresh copy of iTunes.

Also I would change whatever real time protection you are using since it seems to be ineffective in protecting you against these threats.
