Iminent toolbar is a browser extension for Internet Explorer and Firefox which is used to emoticons while using Facebook and web-based email products. During installation the Iminent toolbar changes your browser’s homepage to seach.iminent.com and your standard search engine will be also set to search.iminent.com.
Though this is promoted to be compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and other major browsers, in fact, it does not function properly in all of them. For instance, when launched in Tor browser, it does not show any search results. If you open in browsers which do not hide your identity, you might be bothered by localized commercial alerts and popups. Better perform the Iminent removal before it causes more annoying consequences.
Avoid installing PUP by monitoring installation of the freeware
Though in most cases, users install potentially unwanted programs on their own, browser hijackers might occur if a user accidentally installs it along with another freeware. It gets pinned to more popular free file converters or movie streaming sites under “Basic” settings. Thus, when a user switches between the installation stages, they often tend to overlook its attachment.
Likewise, you might have committed the same mistake. In order not to repeat it again in the future, install any new tool and select “Custom” settings. Remove the checkmarks from the unwanted applications and continue the installation of the primary software. Note that the toolbar targets every user, whether they reside in Poland or the United Kingdom, and any browser.
