Search.iminent.com is a questionable search engine, which has been included to browser hijacker categoy. This means that it is capable of affecting probably all browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) that can be installed on the system and used by the user. As soon as it does that, it may start causing such unwanted activities as various system changes. Beware that it may easily change your start page or default search engine. In addition, you may notice that you can't use your favorite search engines because you are redirected from Google or Bing to Iminent Search site. Besides, you may notice continuous pop-up ads during your browsing that promote suspicious third parties. Please, do NOT click these ads because they may redirect you to unknwn and questionable websites that may be used for promoting really suspicious software. We think that these constant search.iminent.com redirects to affiliate domains is the most annoying result of having this virus inside the system. Besides, it seems that it may collect information about people's browsing habits and may record people's search terms, mostly visited websites, data that they enter when visiting them, etc. If you have already noticed that this program is interrupting you and is redirecting you to unknown places, you should scan your PC with reputable anti-spyware and remove all suspicious programs from it.
