Zemana is simply recognizing IObit as a PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application) otherwise known as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) the decision to keep or delete is up to you. If you are happy with the results that program produces, you can keep it. If Zemana has an exclusion section, mark it as such.

Hello morio2, atailor1 gave you a great explanation and I completely agree with him.

Adding an exception for Surfing Protection in Zemana is definitely best option.

If Zemana does not have an exclusion/exception section (which i doubt) i recommend using other AV software.
