Danger level 5
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application
Common infection symptoms:
  • Connects to the internet without permission
  • Shows commercial adverts
  • Slow internet connection
  • Cant change my homepage
  • Annoying Pop-up's

If home page is set as your default search engine, then it is very likely that you have accidentally downloaded and installed a product from the Iminent group. These potentially unwanted programs are available at official websites, and most of the applications function as toolbars that provide you with the custom emoticons and smilies for your online chats and even video messages. Users are strongly recommended to remove from their browsers as well as uninstall Iminent toolbar and other related applications, because they might be related to a number of security threats.

Consequently, can also be related to the Conduit group of potentially unwanted applications, because Iminent Community Toolbar is classified as a browser extension from the Conduit family. Either way, it shows that is part of the potentially unwanted program package and you are advised against using the website for your web searches and other needs.

However, it should be pointed out that does not infect your computer without your permission. Generally, users install Iminent Toolbar and on their browsers willingly. If you do not download the application from the official website at, then it is also possible to download it at third party websites, such as Cnet. What is more, just like it is the usual with the freeware applications, might also be bundled with third party applications that you download at some random website.

Either way, users are always notified when they are about to install on their computers, so you can choose whether you want to change your home page and default search engine to or not. If you choose to modify your browser settings, you need to keep in mind that supports third party advertising and promotes affiliated websites. However, the third party advertising may prove to be risky, as does not review all the ads contents, so in case a malevolent third party exploits for corrupted content distribution, the application could not be blamed for potential malware infection.

Therefore, in order to protect your computer and yourself from any possible threats you need to delete and scan your computer with SpyHunter free scanner in order to determine whether you have any other potentially unwanted programs installed. If so, invest in a reliable computer security tool to terminate all the system threats automatically.

    Uh... Iminent actually appeared randomly. It was after I tried to download a Minecraft skin, but the download failed so now I'm stuck with OffersWizard, PC Fix Speed, Starthelp.exe, and Iminent. :/

    I removed start imminent in the ways listed, then I changed my browser settings to the way they were. All of a sudden my browser crashes. I open up my web browser and guess what pops up? accompanied by a tab saying that a program tried to change my settings and apparently succeeded.
