Iminent toolbar is an adware, which offers to spice up your web activity with various smilies and other emotional icons. According to its owners, it can be used for Facebook, Webmail and other platforms. However, this toolbar has been categorized as potentially unwanted application and adware not because of no reason – PC users claim that Iminent toolbar redirects them to search.iminent.com and other domains that should never be trusted. Mostly, such unknown search pages are used to show altered search results for the victim and simply promote various things in this way. Before starting its redirections, this adware may also track your browsing habits for some time in order to show relevant search results depending on your browsing history. 


Iminent toolbar can be installed either manually or without any sign. This method is based on other programs, freeware and shareware in most of the cases, that have included various toolbars for monetization purposes. Be aware that you can prevent such infiltration only if you carefully read every installation window and uncheck several ticks that announce about Iminent toolbar or other components. Once inside and active, Iminent toolbar settles down and may even start some of unwanted changes made on your system. For example, it may change your browser's homepage to seach.iminent.com and make it your main search engine. To sum up, we do not recommend leaving this toolbar if you haven't installed it by yourself. Note that it may give altered search results for you and initiate unwanted changes on your computer.
