IObit Uninstaller - Fix "whitelist"

Hello, I noticed a potential disaster-waiting-to-happen with the Software Health feature in IObit Uninstaller.

If you inadvertently click on Fix All, you could easily erase important installation files that you would want to keep for some reason (legacy versions, download-once-only software, etc.)

Same with "programs with uninstall issues". Rather than offering to update the software, the system simply uninstalls it. Normally apps have a feature to check for updates already. And sometimes a newer version is only available to subscribers or people who wish to upgrade their current version - so there are several situations where one would want to keep the current version, even if it is no longer up to date.

So my suggestion is a mechanism to "whitelist" or exclude certain programs or files or notifications so that they don't get marked for repair later on and then removed/updated/"fixed" by mistake.

Keep well and regards,

Gary
