SUMo (latest version 5.5.4.385, as of Feb. 16, 2018) continues to detect "Avira Product Family" (which references the file "startui.exe") as being version 15.0.34.21.
Which as stated before, is the wrong file to be looking at, for the version number.
SUMo should instead be looking at the file "avshadow.exe" which would enable correct identification of the Avira Free AV product version: 15.0.34.23.

Actually, whatever method is being used by the Iobit Uninstaller software for version identification, would be better (more accurate) than simply switching from using "startui.exe" to "avshadow.exe".
And: "Antivirus Host Framework Service" should be deleted from SUMo's detection routine, since it does not fit the category of being an "installed software".
