Now that Avira has re-classified IOBit related files as Trojans, how do I suspend or stop Avira’s constant nag popups related to Avira’s IOBit reclassifications? If I completely uninstall all the IOBit related applications and files from my PC and connected exterior storage devices, will that stop or get rid of the IOBit related Avira popups?

Can someone please tell me or direct me to a source to completely uninstall all the IOBit applications on my PC? I’ve tried uninstalling all the IOBit applications prior Avira re-classifying IOBit related files as Trojans, without complete success.

Also, can my PC be harmed if I don’t do anything with all the Quarantine files shown in the Avira Quarantine and Event Logs (Files Attached below)? What do you recommend I do with them?

Maybe its a false positive and you can report it to Avira.
You can also add them to exeptions.
Or you have cracked them and Avira detects the crack.

The Avira detections are related to leftovers of uninstalled Iobit programs.
You can use Everything Search by typing "Iobit" in the search box, then deleting all the found references.
In the quarantine there are also older detections, if they are related to uninstalled applications, then you can delete these detections without problems.
However, the quarantine is a protected area and no malware or suspicious files can get out, so no problem if you do not delete its content.

Quarantined files are protected you are safe to keep them in there. If you think they are false positives you can upload them to Avira for analysis and they will fix it in the next vdf update. They usually get back to me within 2 days. https://analysis.avira.com/en/submit

Iobit is unwanted software and not trustable
Avira is right And Malwarebytes too

Look here for everything.. ^

Also this may interest you Q&A - Advanced System Care By IObit detected by Malwarebytes as PUP. Is it really a PUP?

This is not true. They have some good software like iobit uninstaller(probably one of the best free ones), driver booster(quit good too). the only thing they do when u install free software from them is that it install other software from them too, if u dont click to not install and that isnt realy hard.to say they are not trustable is abit false i would say..

Well, as always if you are suspicious, search online for the file, reputation, hashes, online scanners, vt, etc.. Shadow Defender, Sandbox, VM.

And make up your own conclusion.. I can confirm that iobit is trustworthy, But yes i also think it's on the pup/pua, adware, road in some ways :)

People, sometimes, cannot differentiate between a PUP and Malware when flagged by their (favourite) Security or online analysis tools.

I use IObit Uninstaller Pro and have not seen any malicious behaviours.

IObit can be trusted as a system utility software, but as with most freeware, software wrappers may come with additional software, known as PUP/PUA to most. For this I recommend trying Unchecky.com, which is free and operates in the background.

You can make your own judgement if you want to keep using IObit or not. An exclusion will need to be added to Avira, before reinstalling the software.

Iobit products had problems, but already from some years they are cleaned up, and produce pretty good software like Uninstaller and Driver Booster.
I don't think four or five VT detections mean malware for sure.
And something similar is ZAM flagging YouTube downloader as malware because of 5-6 VT detections. That's why I still use YTD and don't trust ZAM
